$850K Settlement for Alleged Healthcare Privacy Violations

A healthcare system in Massachusetts has agreed to pay an $850,000 settlement to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Civil Rights (OCR) for alleged security and privacy violations.

"OCR said [the healthcare organization] failed to meet HIPAA criteria on risk analysis."

In addition, the OCR said the healthcare organization must also perform an organization-wide risk analysis and submit the analysis and a risk management plan to OCR.
