In March 2016, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) announced a pair of settlement agreements, totaling nearly $5.5 million, with the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in New York and North Memorial Health Care in Minnesota to settle possible HIPAA violations. The Memorial Health Care case also involved a business associate, the Chicago-based revenue cycle management firm Accretive Health, according to the OCR, that said the provider and its contractor did not have a HIPAA-required agreement in place. These vulnerabilities are not uncommon, and although many think this will not happen to them, everyone should embrace security as a priority.
