The concept of privacy is inescapable in modern society. As technology develops rapidly and online connections become an integral part of our daily routines, the lines between what may or may not be acceptable continue to blur. Individual autonomy is important. We cannot, however, allow it to suffocate the advancement of technology in such vital areas as public health. Although this Note cannot lay out detailed instructions to balance the desire for autonomy and the benefits of free information, it attempts to provide some perspective on whether we are anywhere close to striking the right balance. When the benefits of health information technology are so glaring, and yet its progress has been so stifled, perhaps we have placed far too much value--at least in the health care context--on individual privacy.
