This story is no eyeopener if you have followed the health care field. It was clear as long ago as 2000 that hospitals and health care providers would not meet HIPAA standards for security. Their attitude then and now is "you can't make me." It is a PR conundrum that such open civil disobedience is ignored by the country at large. If I were a citizen, I'd be mad as hell. But, when everyone decides to ignore a law, there is nothing a government can do.
