Storyboard Text

  • This is Country Town clinic located in a small town. They're a branch of a huge network Country Town medical services.
  • Country Town Clinic
  • Hey Doctor, Do you want me to send this mail out.
  • Yes please! I need those list to get to our other clinic
  • While they thought they were sending a patient report sheet to the main clinic across town. They actually sent it to a hospital that is unaffiliated .with their network
  • Doctor West, a list of patient names came in the mail, and it's not from one of our hospitals.
  • Just send the list back to wherever they came from, we have no use for it
  • Doc, the patient report that we sent the other day came back with a note saying it was sent to the wrong location
  • They made the mistake of sending patients names to the wrong location. Which is a HIPAA violation because what if the patient report came from a cancer hospital and someone from the other hospital reads the list and finds out she knows people on that list. Now she would know they have cancer which is a violation of the patient's privacy.
