No, HIPAA does not prevent the release or sharing of patient information between medical personnel for the purpose of treatment. As far as sharing the information with the medical board, this may be a violation as there was no specific need for them to know as there may have been between the medical personnel. However, HIPAA gives you no private right of action regarding the release and your only recourse would be to make a complaint to the US Department of Health and Hospitals and let them investigate the matter and take action.
