Data governance
A key component to any data governance stratgey starts with an understanding of just valuable a customer or in this instance patient's data really is to the organization. It's probably one of the best assets an organizations can possess. It's sad that so many organizations fail to stress it significance. Strategy and governance need to move up on the priority list.

HIPAA-like law for consumer data would be nice
While I'm heartened to see the OCR taking a somewhat proactive stance for auditing noncompliant entitities, I'd still like to see the same protections HIPAA affords health records applied to consumer financial data.  Cough Target breach cough Home Depot breach.
