"HIPAA never bothered me… I think I’m ok and I am just going to coast on!”


This philosophy, of burying your head in the sand and not knowing all of the standards you are required to meet via HIPAA, may have worked well, until about four years ago when massive changes took place. The onset of electronic health records, that moved millions of patient files out of doctors’ computers and into the cloud, combined with massive increases of mobile devices, set the stage for a perfect storm relative to the hacking of patient health information.


As long as thieves can get $5-$500 on the black market for patient health information files they will continue to look for ways to steal your information, whether you are on an EMR system or not.

 

The combination of the Anthem insurance hack in February 2015 - affecting 80 million individuals, two Blue Cross affiliate hacks - affecting 22 million people, the funding of HIPAA with an additional $4 million in January 2016 earmarked specifically for physician office audits, along with the fact that the HIPAA law states all funds collected from fines must go back into additional increased enforcement show the reason you need to know what puts you in the crosshairs for the minimum $50,000 to $1.5 million nonnegotiable fines!
