A $2.5 million settlement reported last month by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) reveals the risks when providers fail to understand requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The violation was the impermissible disclosure of unsecured electronic protected health information (ePHI). Reporting our lead story on the next edition of Monitor Mondays will be Sara Goldstein, general counsel for MRO.
