Join us Monday, June 27, 2011, on MediTalk: Twila Brase of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom will expose some of the myths concerning medical privacy, including the truth about HIPAA privacy rules.
Instead of protecting patient privacy, HIPAA is essentially a federal license to intrude.
Also, Ms. Brase will discuss the warehousing of newborns' genetic information. Newborn babies in the United States are routinely screened for a panel of genetic diseases. Since the testing is mandated by the government, it's often done without the parents' consent. In many states, such as Florida babies' DNA is stored indefinitely.
CCHC supports patient and doctor freedom, medical innovation, and the right of citizens to a confidential patient-doctor relationship.
