When choosing a medical provider, patients often want to know about the location of the hospital or clinic, the quality of the doctors and maybe what specialists are available on site. But increasingly there’s another question they need to ask: How well will my personal data be protected?

In this episode of the inewsource podcast we look at the theft of private patient records at hospitals throughout the country, including some right here in San Diego County where at least 30,000 patients have had their records compromised.

This podcast is still evolving and we want to know what you think. Comment on this post or email us and tell us what you like about the show, how we can make it better and what kinds of stories you’d like for us to cover.

In this episode reporter Leo Castaneda discusses medical data breaches with investigative assistant Megan Wood.
