Is there a common denominator for health data breach notification?
For any organization operating in multiple states, I'd think one challenge would be defining the superset of all these laws in order to formulate a consistent policy and business process for responding to incidents. How tough is that?

What's the political reason for the federal government's inaction? Or is it just a symptom of Washington gridlock in general?

I think it is a symptom of Washington not being directly affected by a catastrophic cyber attack at the moment. Our government seems to have become very reactionary, vice proactive. I cover this in today's blog here.

Uniform data breach
One piece that Mac didn't mention is that the Florida law (and most of the state laws) have a much more restricted definition of the identifiers that trigger a breach (they mostly look at financial impact), whereas HIPAA is much broader.  There are likely to be fewer health data breaches under FIPA than under HIPAA.
