Data2Know Issue 2017: Volume 16, Issue 1

Medical Assets: The Government and Your Healthcare Records

In this issue we are examining the most sensitive of asset information: health records. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA), signed into law by President Clinton, was put in action to maintain the privacy and veracity of a person’s personal health conditions. Now, twenty years later, I’m finding databases where data is purchasable via a health credit check company provider. Though HIPPA is a federal law, it is up to the states to enforce action. How secure are records, and what ways are they available to somebody seeking them?

Industry Sources for Every Investigator

One of the challenges with due diligence research is that the industry in which we are investigating is ever-changing. Each industry has its own publications, news, social media forums, and data collections. One example is the medical industry. Cardiologists have their own magazines, associations, and data producers, and you need to search within all those industry resources if you are conducting research on a cardiology group. Research gets tougher with unique occupations—such as waste management, philosophers, and DVR manufacturers. Each has its own panoply of information producers.
This article focuses on the WHERE to find information, rather than the always important WHAT.

Look up: Cell Phone Number

Social security numbers have been the mainstay of investigators since Hank Asher, the legendary father of data fusion, gave us the investigative data tool DBTxp. The social security number is the personal indicator that helps us identify one individual among millions. The cellular phone number, another one-out-of-a million identifying number, is likewise useful for locating a person, however, the cell number is not protected—and, should you dial that cell number, there’s far greater chance your intended subject will answer it.
