OCR Collects Record $7.5M in 2014 Settlements

The Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) collected a record $7.5 million in settlements in 2104.

It is important to note that in most settlement cases there was no evidence any of the protected health information (PHI) has ever been misused. This shows how much higher the standard is for PHI vs credit card information.
