Hospice Receives a $50,000 Penalty for HIPAA Violations

A federal investigation of an information breach that affected fewer than 500 individuals has resulted in a hefty penalty for HIPAA violations.

This demonstrates how important it is to understand that no matter what the size of a breach, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights may issue penalties if its investigation reveals HIPAA non-compliance issues.
