Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
This is an invasion of privacy and it is grounds for him to be even prosecuted for computer hacking for making unauthorized access to the computer system. You need to make the complaint to the Attorney General, not the board of compliance since that is the health company and not the government. Access of those records can be a federal violation and you should notify the FBI and US Attorney General's Office in MA about the unauthorized computer hacking/access.
Furthermore, his access would be invasion of privacy and basis for you to file a civil suit against him and seek monetary damages for the invasion into records he had no right to access.
