The Rising Cost of HIPAA Violations

As detailed by Kimberly Gold in a recent Privacy & Security Matters post, a physician group recently agreed to pay a six-figure fine and implement a corrective action plan under a Resolution Agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights after a lengthy investigation into potential HIPAA violations.  I encourage you to read Kimberly's post because this story serves as an important "teachable moment" for both health care providers and their business associates.
