Between Jan. 2017 and Oct. 2018, HIPAA enforcement actions generated $45,360,363 million in penalties and fines from practices just like yours. Getting hit with a HIPAA violation investigation and penalty is a very real risk. The problem is that many practices think they are prepared – or worse that it can’t happen to them. Don’t make this mistake.
Sure, some of the guilty practices were just careless with the privacy of their patients. But in other cases, the practices thought they were doing everything right and they still got hit with a hefty HIPAA penalty. To make matters worse, one of the top reasons practices get targeted for a HIPAA audit is from patient complaints.
The only way to protect yourself and your practice from being the target of a HIPAA breach investigation and being hit with substantial violation penalties is to have an unshakable handle on HIPAA’s confusing requirements. If you are the subject of a HIPAA enforcement investigation you will be required to prove you have all the necessary documentation in place for safeguarding protected health information (PHI) and demonstrate the validity of your HIPAA compliance plan.
