Overview

Every covered entity and the business associate will experience one or more security incidents every year. Such incidents range from an employee forgetting to log off with no harm done because you caught it before any unauthorized person accessed the computer to a ransomware attack in which you must pay a six-figure ransom to access your data.
Under the HITECH Act and the Omnibus Rule, covered entities and business associates must report certain breaches of PHI to the Department of Health and Human Services. These reports can result in large civil money penalties (CMP) (fines)-as high to $4.8 million to date.
Having a proper procedure to determine whether a security incident is a breach and, if so, is it reportable is absolutely crucial. Not only can it result in a CMP, it is a priority compliance issue in the HIPAA audits that are ongoing. The possibility of a CMP is illustrated by Presence Health's $475,000 settlement with the DHHS Office of Civil Rights (OCR) 2017. And it was for late reporting. God knows how bad the monetary settlement in lieu of a CMP would be if it was non-reporting rather than late reporting
