Isn't this what HIPAA was for?

I read the first paragraph in this piece regarding Obama's mandate that we move to electronic medical records (a big step in nationalizing healthcare in this country). It says "The aim is to improve medical care, increase the efficiency of heath care delivery and ultimately cut health care costs." When I co-wrote our book on HIPAA compliance back in 2003, improving medical care, increasing the efficiency of heath care delivery and ultimately cutting health care costs was a big part of why HIPAA came about in the first place.

What am I missing here? This is a prime example of our own government not enforcing the laws already on the books. Read what I said about this very thing last August. Simply amazing. A case of politicians trying to be busybodies to justify their jobs...and their existence.
