The Doctors are joined by Katherine Schwarzenegger and they discuss the growing trend of celebrity medical records being breached.
According to reports, celebrities like Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, George Clooney, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Tom Hanks, Drew Barrymore and even Katherine’s parents Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, have had incidents where their records were improperly accessed.
“It’s such an invasion of privacy. And I feel like especially with social media now, everything is so public, and we give so much all the time. People should respect people’s privacy, especially when it comes to people’s health. That’s something that is really personal,” Katherine says.
The Doctors note that HIPAA laws make it illegal to release someone’s medical records without one’s disclosure or consent. They also note that not just celebrities should be concerned about keeping their medical records and files private.
In 2015, over 113 million healthcare records were stolen. They suggest treating your medical information in the same way you might protect your financial information. They note that even things like a label on a prescription bottle can contain important and private information and suggest not simply tossing it in the trash and going the extra length of destroying the label.
