Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
If a person discusses their own medical history with someone else, HIPAA does not apply. If they talk about it in public and someone overhears it and somehow uses that information, including a marketer, somehow, HIPAA has nothing to do with that.
Now, there may be an expectation of a certain amount of privacy when discussing something over email, but if that information is somehow obtained -- even by a breach of the email servers, and assuming neither server/individual is a hospital/doctor/insurer/etc or an employee of such -- HIPAA does not somehow magically apply. Just because it is medical information, it is not immediately protected by HIPAA.
I'm not sure why you're hung up on PHI, I didn't see anything related to medical information mentioned yet. But that's what business agreements are for: to share or pass the blame.
I demand more research investigating this fart-rain connection. The fact that there is none proves a conspiracy by the fart-denialists!
True. Having two left eyes or two right eyes would be awkward.

Personally I'm waiting for[...] "Oww my balls" to air
That was an act on "America's Got 'Talent' " a few seasons ago. It even went through a few rounds. No $#!@. I haven't watched since.
Correct: we have one of these, so I immediately went to perform the update just to find it was already done.
Thank you: that's the first reasonable explanation I've heard for why the data misrepresentation might occur. It seems obvious now that it's spelled out, but many others seem to have overlooked that reasoning as well.
So then "How Far [you are] Traveling For the Holidays" would be the total amount of driving needed for both holidays.
I say Happy Holidays if I want someone to have happy holidays. I say Merry Christmas if I want them to have a Merry Christmas and then contract AIDS while being raped by rabid gorillas on New Years Day, which happens to be another upcoming holiday... I mean New Years, not Gorilla Rape Day: that's no fun at all.
