HIPAA Enforcement Summary Q1 2021

We are pleased to provide to you our next flipbook providing a succinct summary of the HIPAA penalties applied by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Civil Rights (OCR) in Q1, 2021. As you will see within this complimentary flipbook, a large penalty was applied for a long-term hack that gave cybercriminals unauthorized access to patient records over many months. And, continuing the trend of 2020, fines and penalties continue to be applied for HIPAA non-compliance with the Right of Access requirement. As more complaints are received by the HHS OCR for non-compliance with the HIPAA requirements for allowing individuals access to their associated health data, those non-compliance penalties are also becoming more commonly applied, and associated fines are being levelled against not just large organizations, but every organization size from the largest down to one-person providers and insurers who do not follow the requirements for providing copies of PHI in a timely manner to the applicable requestors.

We hope you find this free flipbook useful. You are also able to download a PDF of the eBook through the flipbook navigation bar at the bottom of the flipbook pages.
