"An unpaid Pakistani transcriber threatened to release medical records of patients at UCSF Medical Center on the internet."

"While it's impossible to know for sure how much of the work is heading overseas, the American Association for Medical Transcription, an industry group, estimates that about 10 percent of all U.S. medical transcription is being done abroad. "

See why we should keep some jobs within the US? The ones that deal with private information? Man.

This is a quote of someones post in slashdot, but it relates to outsourcing at a more serious level:

by christoofar (451967)

"I know of a particular BIG insurance company here in Texas that outsources a LOT of their core work overseas. This company happens to cater to members of the US armed forces and civil service employees. When people get deployed or move, they have to call this company to have all their addresses changed.
To think... now India and Pakistan probably now have a good listing of where a lot of our US service members are located. It's glad that India and Pakistan are our "aliies" or we'd really be in the # now... "
