AHIC privacy co-chairman resigns in protest

AHIC privacy co-chairman resigns in protest, Government Health IT

Paul Feldman resigned on Feb. 21 as co-chairman of the American Health Information Community’s Confidentiality, Privacy and Security (CPS) Workgroup, citing in a letter to Interim National Coordinator for Health Information Technology Robert Kolodner the panel’s lack of “substantial progress toward the development of comprehensive privacy and security policies that must be at the core of a nationwide health information network.”

A bad sign. A very bad sign.
