As someone who was a victim of this breach (they filed tax returns using our SSN’s Dec 31, 2014) this hits close to home! You mean, someone might intercept my Viagra, Percocet, and Ativan prescriptions?!?!?

Question for all health professionals:

With the recent rash of patient ID stealing (Anthem especially), say a patient of yours has someone impersonate them at another practice, they get medical care and/or medications. No one figures it out.

You go in at the patients' next appointment, and make assumptions that the information in the chart is correct. You make a different course of action (misdiagnosis) due to that information.

Has any one considered about having checks other than just medication checks in the chart to stop a scenario like this? I can say no I'm not taking that medication, to the nurse when they ask. It will be struck off with no other comment.
