Has anyone hacked into electronic health records?

Yes.: Anything stored in an electronic format is "hackable". No system is 100% secure. That goes the same for other sensitive systems like bank records, federal records, etc. There are different levels of security though. Communicating with your doctor through gmail is not as secure as something that is hippa compliant.
