Data Collection Entities: Who Collects What on Health?

The Equifax data breach has generated a certain amount of astonishment that the credit rating bureau obtained and retained far more data than many people were aware. They're not the only data collection entity with untold resources, however.  The Medical Information Bureau is a membership organization that collects and stores health related underwriting information for health, life, disability, long-term care and other kinds of insurance.

Happy thought indeed.
