Too much information
A good article, but are healthcare providers collecting too much personal information?
I visited my dentist yesterday for a toothcleaning - I have been a patient for >4 years - yesterday I was presented with a new set of forms - they needed insurance card, driving license, social security number, address, date of birth. The patient records are on display in open filing racks, I don't know who has access to their computers or where the backups are kept or if they shred their old paperwork, but it looked like identity theft waiting to happen.
When did an insurance card or credit card become insufficient for a $80 cleaning?
