Product Description

Struggling To Keep Up With The Security Needs Of Electronic Devices? Confused about the Risks Of Using E-Mail And Texting For Patient And Provider Communications? Don't sweat it out, see below to overcome all the challenges.

As we all know, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI), a Boston hospital overlooking the Charles River and Longfellow Bridge, agreed to settle a HIPAA PHI breach case for $1.5 million. The breach occurred when a laptop computer was lost during a 2010 medical conference in South Korea. The computer was not protected with laptop encryption software, although it did feature a sort of LoJack for computers.

Again, Clark Memorial Hospital in Jeffersonville, Indiana issued a statement apologizing for a third-party mailing company’s mistake that led to compromised personal health information for 1,087 patients. Billing statements for those patients were sent to the incorrect address, and included names, dates of service, billing information, insurance information, and financial status for each account. The hospital stresses that detailed clinical information, birth dates, and social security numbers were not included in the mailing from Mail Louisville, Inc.
