Medical Health Disclosure vs. Steve Jobs' Privacy

beanerspace Isn't this covered at some level by HIPAA? (362 comments)

Isn't this why we have the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)? Granted, said act is with regards to privacy primarily primarily health insurance portability in mind ... but how can such privacy be afforded Mr.Jobs if/when disclosed to investors?

It also makes me wonder to some degree about said investors, as it sounds like they're putting all their Apple eggs into a person rather than a company? Shouldn't said investors then also ask "what guarantees can Mr.Jobs give us that he won't get hit by a bus?"
