This would put individual veterans health information at risk for HIPAA violations without extra safeguards. Our veterans should have equal rights to privacy in regards to their healthcare. This law, as it is written, needs clarification around privacy. It would be my guess that something like this on a case by case basis, upon request by the patient, could be useful. I'm not sure that that isn't already available to veterans- case by case and upon their request. This should be made clear before a law like this is voted into place.
