I'm running a totally unofficial survey above the cluster map. This week it has the question: Wool-gathering, just wait.....

Do you think this site violates HIPAA?
95%-No Remainder split between Yes and Undecided.
I'll try to get more creative in the future, but it's a start. It does a six-day calculation. I also take suggestions, with the usual profanity exclusions. Mostly at the level of what you can hear on network TV.
Along with this week's survey (again, all comments posted anonymously are anonymous), any specific examples are welcome.
One more thing, seriously: If you really do think that there is a HIPAA violation, email or comment to me where it is. I'll run it by either the HIPAA blog, or there are a few sites that have picked up on this that seem to have resident experts that I will try. I've said from the beginning that I had no intention of being in violation of the Act.
