Singing River Health System - Bring your own contract to protect your info. from hospital and hippa

my serological sample and no doubt many other peoples samples were sent from SRHS to a company in salt lake city Utah as part of a" work flow process" this sample was already tested in house prior to my surgery within the hour of my arrival. the results took 9 days to return , my hospital stay was supposed to be 1 week. the redundant nature of the testing and time lapsed made this doubly useless to patient benefit. however, ARUP is a genetic databaser and serological test co. obviously they are databasing every serological sample they receive, if this was just a " bill soaking" it would have been done a lot closer to hospital. this situation is akin to dr Frankenstein having a funeral home next to the mad lab, but insisting no body parts from there are used . the obvious temptation combined with hippas willingness to monetize you fully in contraindication to their stated prime directive of preserving your records privacy and confidentiality should be troubling to all. the pentagon is warning its military members to avoid all genetic testers. but not the public. everyone should bring their own contracts to their medical providers forbidding HIPPA and said provider from monetizing anything from the encounter. they will claim that great care and contractural agreements with third party protect you, but those agreements are dissolved when third party sells its co. to another. no doubt the genetic databasers will sell to another to alleviate contractural limitations on monetizing you. check your online medical chart for co. name ARUP , a place too far away from ocean springs Mississippi to be of timely benefit to the patient. then demand to know the truth from your provider, freedom of information request .
