HIPAA Compliance and Enforcement

OCR’s HIPAA enforcement activities continue to expand, associated with the increasing amount of complaints they receive every year. We developed an infographic that highlights data on both OCR’s HIPAA audits and their enforcement activities in 2015 and 2016 to date. We also include the latest enforcement examples, Catholic Health Care Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia (CHCS) and Advocate Health Care Network.

You can view and download the infographic below, but a few key points we wanted to highlight include:

  • 69% of complaints investigated by OCR have required corrective action.
  • The total amount monetary settlements in 2016 so far is over $20.3 million, which is already much more than any other year.
