This case involves a woman whose roommate accessed and shared her sensitive medical records without her consent. Leading up to the event, the woman and her roommate had gotten into a dispute. Because of this dispute, the roommate vengefully logged into the plaintiff’s online records using easily-ascertainable personal information and sent the medical records to the woman’s partner. The records contained information regarding the woman’s history of an incurable sexually transmitted disease which her partner was unaware of. It was alleged that the hospital was negligent in providing sufficient security barriers for accessing sensitive records. An expert in electronic health records was consulted to determine if the hospital was in violation of any regulations that may have forbidden certain information from being accessible online.
