I am a doc, share the indignation expressed at the stupid practices referenced on this thread and guard my own information in situations where it is possible. Like everyone else I desperately want to assign blame for the irresponsible handling of confidential information. Then I tell myself not no fast. If you drill down to the root cause for this madness you find that most of our problems arise from crappy software designed to "assist" businesses comply with government regulations, requirements of insurers and a dumbed down workforce.

First impulse is to switch to better software. Well usually there is none. Refuse to comply with regulations? We know where that option goes. Hire really smart ethical compassionate people to sensitive positions offering minimum wage? UMM!!! We all see this picture every day. At present I find more peace of mind accepting that all of us are casualties of the irresponsible and often unnecessary growth of IT than trying to blame someone. Until I make the decision to live entirely off grid(never) or the software evolves into what it needs to be I will suffer just like everyone else.
