The Final Omnibus Rule states PHI must be unusable, unreadable, or indecipherable to unauthorized individuals. That’s easier said than done. In 2016 alone, 16.5 million patient records were exposed. Loss of medical records or a failed Office of Civil Rights audit means damage to patient trust and your brand. Potential fines and litigation make compliance even more compelling. Penalties for HIPAA violations in 2016 totaled $15 million, with Advocate Health incurring a $5.6 million fine involving 4 million patient records.
