Accretive To Answer Senator's Questions
HEALTHCARE PRIVACY—U.S.May 11, 2012
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Accretive CEO Mary Tolan plans to answer questions posed by Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) over the company's patient-privacy practices at Fairview hospitals. The company has already missed two deadlines set by Franken, some of which include questions about an incident involving the loss of an unencrypted laptop containing the personal information of approximately 23,000 Minnesotans. Franken said he is "concerned about the allegations in Attorney General (Lori) Swanson's report, and I want to hear all sides of this story."
