Don't worry about what might happen to your medical records, worry about what already has happened to them.

With every Dr.'s visit and Surgery, electronic dictation is made (unless your Dr. types during your visit). This dictation is then sent electronically to India where about 90% of all medical dictation is now done. How secure is this arrangement? Your guess is as good as mine. Medical transcription jobs here in the USA where you are under the rules of HIPPA have been almost all shipped to India. Anyone want to guess what rules they follow regarding the confidentiality of your information? Who knows.....
