HIM-HIPAA Insider, May 21, 2012

HIPAA in 2011. Those 365 days were more about bad headlines for organizations:

  • Cignet Health fined $4.3 million in OCR’s first civil money penalty
  • UCLA Health System pays $865,000 to settle HIPAA violation claims
  • Massachusetts General Hospital agrees to pay $1 million for HIPAA breach
The headlines just kept coming.
