Stop Sending Personal Medical Information Overseas sign now

It is imperative that the practice of allowing medical information to be sent overseas (namely India) to be transcribed is stopped immediately. When a patient sees a doctor, there is a chance that his or her medical information will be dictated and sent to a company overseas. There are abosolutely NO precautions that can be taken to assure that that information is not taken and used for criminal purposes. Many times when a doctor dictates medical information, names, birth dates, and social security numebrs are dictated as identifying information. Anyone with access to a social security number and birth date can use that inforamtion to obtain credit cards, loans, money transfers, etc. There are NO protections involved to assure that a person in India would not use that information and NO legal recourse to take from this country once it happens. Please, please do not allow something that is absolutely preventable happen to an innocent American. This must stop immediately or anyone who sees a doctor is at risk. Ask your doctor how he is protecting you and if he is sending your medical information to India. It is absolutely imperative that this stop immediately.

    Outsourcing is a major problem and of great concern. Look at the rising unemployment in America. Corporations do not see past the bottom dollar.
