I’m Not Anti-Vaxx – How Informed Citizens Can Defend Themselves in an Unforgiving Political Climate (Guest: Twila Brase)

Health Care News Podcast

According to the New York Times, about 90 million people in the U.S. – one third of the population – have received at least one shot of the coronavirus vaccine.  Yet, that does not seem to be enough. The pressure continues to get nearly every adult vaccinated, whether they are at risk from dying of COVID or not. There is also pressure on people to continue wearing masks even though vaccines do not stop virus transmission.  Vaccines only prevent people who get them from getting extremely sick from the virus. If you question the vaccine you might easily be attacked…. You might be called heartless… putting fellow citizens at risk… or an “antivaxxer,” which has connotations of something worse.Twila Brase, founder and president of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom, discusses how this busy-body climate has evolved and what the public really needs to know about vaccine campaigns. For example, hospitals or insurance companies may be rewarded financially by how many people they vaccinate.

Episode 023: How HIPAA Destroyed Patient Privacy with Twila Brase, RN

The Paradocs Podcast with Eric Larson

HIPAA (or the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act) passed in 1996 and has been touted by legislators, physicians, patients, and health industry leaders as a law that protects patient medical data privacy. It turns out, as with the names of many laws that pass in Congress, the act does the exact opposite as what you might guess. The act allows for over 2.2 million entities in the US to trade, disperse, and sell your personal medical data without your consent. My guest, Twile Brase, is a nurse who is an expert on electronic health record laws and medical data privacy. She has just written a new book called, Big Brother in the Exam Room, which describes in detail the extent to which data is being collected and used without any of our consents. This is occurring despite many people (including most physicians and other ancillary health care personnel) thinking that HIPAA passed to protect our medical information from being disclosed. Contrary to what many people believe, those HIPAA forms you sign at the doctor's office, pharmacy, dentist office, etc. is not a notice that your personal health information is being protected. It is a form that states that you agree that you had a chance to review the HIPAA disclosure form. If you sign the form, the medical entity can share, sell, or trade that data with 2.2 million other entities. If you don't sign the form, the medical entity can share, sell, or trade that data with 2.2 million other entities. In other words, HIPAA made your medical information freely accessible without your consent whether you read the disclosure form or not. Twila has been in the business of advocating for our privacy for a long time. She co-founded the Citizen's Council for Health Freedom (CCHF), is an active public speaker, advocates for stronger privacy laws in state legislatures, and is cited in numerous print and television outlets. Her organization, CCHF, is advocating for a strengthening of state privacy laws, repeal of HIPAA, and for patients to stop signing the disclosure form and become aware that HIPAA doesn't protect their data.
