Is it malpractice if your physician gives out medical information without your consent?

It is not malpractice; however it would be a violation of the Federal HIPAA law (or if not in the USA, the local equivalent patient privacy laws). HIPAA is an acronym for the Health Information Privacy Protection Act. It prohibits medical personnel from divulging certain medical information of patients to others without the patient's consent. If a physician gives out medical information without your consent, he or she would not be guilty of malpractice but would be in violation of federal law. This could subject the physician to penalties and damages - both from the government and potentially from patients if they can show harm from the disclosure. In the EU, the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC also makes it illegal for a doctor to share information without patient consent except in certain limited situations. Most other jurisdictions have similar laws.
