Re: What should InformationWeek Healthcare do different in 2014?
Health care is one of the biggest issue and there our a number of stories. The important point which is missing is the ways to create a great health with care. I am a doctor and I will suggest everybody to do regular exercises, eat three time a day, Ventouse Cellulite and avoid outside stuff and packed food. I hope my suggestion will be helpful.

Re: More breaches
Additionally, there are a number of stories about telemedicine. Hackers have found inventive ways to use personal information and it doesn't get any more personal than having your medical information stolen, or even worse, modified!

Modified medical info sounds benign, but as telemedicine becomes more prevalent, doctors will become dependent on that info. Tweak the numbers a bit and suddenly you are prescribed medicines that could cause heart attack, stroke. It sounds a bit far fetched, but these are the unintended consequences of technology that we have to be aware of.

More breaches
There will be a lot more healthcare breaches in 2013, @David, both because of Obamacare and both through traditional means -- through hospitals, healthcare providers, insurers, and employees who leave unencrypted laptops in their cars or on subways. And that's only breaches that affect 500+ reported, so who knows about the smaller ones?
