Attention!!!

  • Malicious code and spear phishing – For every hospital that makes the news, there are an undetermined number that were infected and either recovered from backups or paid the ransom and did not make the news.
  • OCR’s Audit – On March 21, the first wave of phase 2 audit letters were sent. Those chosen have 10 business days to submit the initial request for documentation. Unlike previous HIPAA audits, noncompliance findings will likely result in a settlement: fines and corrective action plans. On April 4, the OCR released the new audit protocol.
  • OCR and Business Associates - Jocelyn Samuels, Director of the Office for Civil Rights was quoted in two recent ‘HIPAA fine’ articles published by HealthData Management
