The authors address how Practice Fusion disclosed consumers' reviews for their doctors, resulting in the public disclosure of sensitive personal and medical information. Mr. Katz and Ms. Hinson offer their insights as to how businesses with electronic health records (HER) can avoid violating any FTC regulations and what these companies will face if they fail to comply.
