Hat too Flat

At a recent speech in Washington DC, Google's Adam Bosworth set forth a bunch of stuff planned for Google Health, described as as likely to be “simple, sloppy solution” as befitting the Google way of doing business. All of it sounded pretty good, except when he unleashed this whopper:

Google is trying to lay the groundwork to have HIPAA overturned, and short of that would like to educate providers and patients about how to get at their information even within the constraints of current laws. They’d like to see consumers have the ability to review and challenge their records as is the case with credit bureau information

Ummm.... this is already a right under HIPAA--- Mr.Bosworth seems to have been talking through his hat.
