I think the privacy rule is well established but the fact that HIPAA origin is to accommodate the insurance system, an economic function, as it’s the main health system in the US, making it rather go with the economical backbone, not the humane-ethical view. When the needs for new content are compressed to met humane-ethical like this case, if an organization has no strong political-ethical standpoint, they are likely to compromise. Following the privacy rule might not a solution for all (even they followed it they still fined), the organization should make a plan on information risk management on exposing their reputation into a disputable situation like this.
