Miss. Hospital Pays $2.75M to Resolve Alleged HIPAA Violations

Publisher: Bloomberg BNA’s Health Care Daily Report

Eric Fader was quoted in an article, "Miss. Hospital Pays $2.75M to Resolve Alleged HIPAA Violations," in Bloomberg BNA’s Health Care Daily Report. In the article, Fader says that a Mississippi hospital's $2.75 million settlement to resolve numerous alleged HIPAA violations arising out of the theft of a laptop in 2013 is the latest indication that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has shifted its enforcement efforts into high gear. Several of the HIPAA settlements announced by the OCR since late last year have involved a lack of effective risk management. "There is no question that the OCR understands the importance of repetition in marketing, even when what's being marketed is the need for regulatory compliance rather than a specific product or service, and I believe we're likely to see the current wave of settlement announcements continue for some time," Fader said.
