CMS posts HIPAA compliance review examples

HIM-HIPAA Insider, September 8, 2008

CMS will post sample findings and lessons learned from the security compliance reviews it began conducting in January 2008, according to information on its Web site.
CMS currently has posted a compliance review case study related to the loss of a portable device. The scenario describes a complaint-based compliance review of a hospital that experienced a security breach when a laptop computer containing ePHI about thousands of patients was stolen. The case scenario includes the Office of E-Health Standards & Services audit response and corrective action plan.
Additional examples are forthcoming, according to CMS.
