Not fully abandoned yet. Unlike THP they have not pulled all the radios yet.

Their conversations are hilarious at times, very informative also. They're basically repeating their dispatches on there from the p2 side which helps the people that don't have a phase 2 scanner yet like myself. It seems its only 2nd shift that uses it.

The traffic I heard shouldn't have been said on a clear channel anyway. In my opinion very unprofessional comms, I even heard someone cuss on it. And TMC could hear it despite what that one person told you "turned down" they heard, so the cat was out of the bag before I posted anything about it.

HIPPA doesn't really mean much regarding two-way radio traffic. Its about medical records, and continues to be used as an excuse to block public access to public. Yes, discretion should always be used when on the air, but unless you give a person's name and very specific medical record information about them, then there is no issue.

Disagree with you on your interpretation of HIPAA. Federal law is very specific that medical information and personally identifiable information not be disclosed without the patient's consent. Everything we send one way or another related to a particular medical situation has to be both limited in scope and encrypted. So EMS has moved to encryption and cell phone to relay medical information. HIPAA is first nature to me living it everyday. I am not a proponent of encryption but for EMS patient broadcasts it is essential.

The other side, i.e. an accident report or criminal takedown is not HIPAA related and in fact is public record. Most try to limit disclosure of accident victims especially fatalities until NOK notified. But such is usually regulated at the local/state level unlike HIPAA.

HIPAA only applies when you discuss medical history details or full treatment. The use of encryption with in route patient reports is lawyers being extra zealous in advice and mighty funny that none of this applies to the VA Er lol they use SSN and initials on all patients to verify eligibility. And as is stated does not apply to lea or heats giving accident and basic victim status.
