    The Health Data Conundrum

    Nice article summarizing some of the issues with centralized medical record databases and why they need to be decentralized, transferring ownership to patients.

    Hadn't heard that Quest Diagnostics had been hacked, that is "great", been using them for years now. Guess they would notify us if we were a victim of this?

    @*GG*, I would think they would send you a letter. I remember an urgent care I went to years ago was hacked and I received a letter in the mail letting me know my data was compromised.
