Information about HIPAA Breach

HIPAA Breach Notification Rule

The HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, 45 CFR §§ 164.400-414, requires HIPAA covered entities, and their business associates to provide notification following a breach of unsecured protected health information, as it could be harmful to those whose information has been accessed. Similar breach notification provisions implemented and enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), apply to vendors of personal health records and their third party service providers, pursuant to section 13407 of the HITECH Act.

The average cost of HIPAA Breach to an organization is $7.2 million. When you consider the costs of damaged reputations, diminished consumer confidence, and class-action lawsuits, the costs may be even much higher. Why open your organization to this type of situation, when we can offer you expert guidance and practical solutions? We will provide you with the ideal products and services, including helpful checklists, and move you to full HIPAA compliance.

HIPAA Privacy Rule changes mean increased penalties, frequent audits, following HIPAA Breach. The HITECH Act enhanced patient rights, but imposed technical and procedural burdens on entities which must comply. Policies and procedures need evaluation, to ensure they meet the requirements. Your policies will need modification, to meet the new rules for access and accounting of disclosures, and new restrictions on some disclosures that used to be allowed. New enforcement and audit requirements need re-view too; they impact on non-compliance. InfoSight Inc. will guide you on these matters.

InfoSight solutions can be specifically customized, to fit your level of risk, the type of data exposed, the severity of any HIPAA Breach, and, of course, your budget.
