Your Prescription History Report

Ever wonder how easy it is for just anyone to access your healthcare records? That's a complex subject that we'll explore more of here at this blog.

Here's an initial observation. I received an email today from a national litigation support service informing me that for a price I could discover a 5-year list of all prescription information with respect to a given client or defendant.

Of course, one assumes that releases are necessary. And any such information could have important ramifications on the manner in which a case was handled.

But it's still worth thinking about how your pharmaceutical history is becoming increasingly electronic and widely discoverable.
