Re: All depends on implementation
That's interesting, @moarsauce. For one thing, it shows just how far behind the US has been in terms of adopting technology within healtcare. For another, it demonstrates how secure these systems can be, when implemented well. One thing I wonder, though: What disclosure laws does Germany have if a healthcare provider's data is breached? Does an organization have to notify patients, partners, etc., if data's potentially been lost or stolen and what are the criteria (for example, after 500 records are affected; within 30 days...)?
