HIPAA’s Enforcement Realities

A Status Report On HIPAA Enforcements and a Warning: The Government is Getting More Aggressive

By the end of May 2017, The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) within Health and Human Services (HHS) had already fined nine different healthcare organizations a total of $17 million for various HIPAA compliance violations. With an average fine of $1.9 million per enforcement, 2017 is trending at a rapid rate, and will undoubtedly surpass the total fines levied in 2016. Here’s a little more perspective: the fines of 2016 totaled more than $23 million. Compare that to the approximately $8 million in both 2015 and 2014, and the $3.8 million in 2013.

Fines are increasing at an exponential rate.
