Healthcare Worker Convicted for Impermissible Use of PHI

A respiratory therapist was convicted for inappropriate access of patient health information while working at an Oregon, Ohio hospital. Over a 10 month period the healthcare worker inappropriately accessed the electronic health records of over 550 patients.

The therapist accessed a patient's health information on a hospital computer between the dates of May 10, 2013 to March 25, 2014.

The therapist could be sentenced up to one year in prison and up to $50,000 in fines. The conviction was the result of an investigation by the FBI.

Help Children's Hospitals - National Pancake Day, 3/8/2016

As an official partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Veriphyr wants to encourage everyone to support IHOP’s National Pancake Day on Tuesday, March 8, 2016.

IHOP Restaurants and Veriphyr partners with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to help improve the lives of millions of sick children. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with IHOP in support of this great cause and, frankly, we’d hate for you to miss out on free pancakes!

How it Works: IHOP invites guests to visit their local IHOP restaurant on National Pancake Day and receive a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. In return, they ask that you make a voluntary donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (or, in select markets, another local charity) while at the restaurant.

For more information on National Pancake Day and to find a participating IHOP near you, please go www.ihoppancakeday.com

Learn how to proactively detect identity theft and unauthorized breaches of data privacy, even by insiders such as employees, contractors, providers, and vendors.
