IamA I.T. worker in the healthcare industry, and I want to answer your questions about how your patient information isn't always secure
My short bio: I've worked in the healthcare industry, approaching 4 years, I work mostly with small to medium sized clients, and I want to let you know how your information is not often properly secured despite recommendations. I am not a lawyer but I have what I'd consider a firm handle on HIPAA privacy.

UPDATE: Still answering questions, and wanted to let people know if they come to this thread in the morning please go ahead and post because I'll keep replying to questions that haven't been answered yet, I'll need some sleep here soon
UPDATE 2: Been answering questions since I woke up! Glad to see all the questions, it's currently 1:11pm pst and I'll be answering questions for as long as people are posting today! I'm not one of those iama guys who answers 10 questions with 1 liners and peaces out, keep em coming!
UPDATED 3: Answering questions all day! Thanks for the input/contributions guys, if you're coming into this late I'll keep responding as long as questions keep coming in, they just won't be as active as they were today :)
