They say there are not viewing the medical data of the patients, they have the name, address and know the clinic or doctor’s office they came from as well as the condition of the visit. Isn’t it pretty much complete? Many pieces of information make up sensitive data and PHI. I agree with David that there should be an “oped-out” clause at the office knowing they are going to use the information. If they have been doing this for years now, have they checked the HIPAA Rules that have taken affect this year? They just might be violating HIPAA rules without fully knowing it. I do HIPAA self-assessment Audits and I find many practices do not fully understand and practice the rules. Yes, most people would rather keep their medical conditions private and yes the person behind you may know what you are buying, but the rest of the world doesn’t need to know.
