Anthem security warning

The ANTHEM security breach is just another in a long line of similar incidents and, unfortunately, this will not be the last. That's why I lodged a complaint recently with the service that manages my electronic medical record (EMR) for City of Hope.

My plea dealt with the fact that the EMR online request asked for my social security number to be entered but, of course, I declined and told the service (via and email) that it is ill-advisable for EMR systems to ask for that type of personal information. This ANTHEM issue is evidence enough that EMR operators should not only shore up their security settings, but adjust their policies to not ask for personal information they simply do not need.
