one million five hundred thousand health records lost

Connecticut reports one computer hard-drive lost with 1.5m records

If these were paper records, probably several warehouses would have to be lost to a natural disaster to have the same effect as a missing hard-drive. Doesn’t the HITECH act require disclosure at time of loss?

Technology can have a lot to answer for at times…
