O&P COMPUTER SYSTEMS ARE GENERALLY UNPROTECTED AND VULNERABLE TO HACKING WHICH MAKES THEM NON HIPAA COMPLIANT
FINES FOR HIPAA ELECTRONIC NONCOMPLIANCE ARE SKYROCKETING
Already by (October of 2016) fines total 21.38 million, 6 times 2015’s total of 6.1 Million. The goverment is randomly choosing organizations to audit similar to what MEDICARE did with RAC.
The Danger is the black market for information
The real danger to O&P is the high black market value of a hacked medical record $10 to $50 compared with 25₵ to 50₵ for a credit card record. The cost for the loss of 1 record is $402.00 according to the 2016 Cost of Data Breach Study: United States, sponsored by IBM and independently conducted by Ponemon Institute LLC, June 2016.
O&P companies exclusively handle highly desirable medical records, but do not understand electronic HIPAA compliance requirements. This perfect storm puts them in the crosshairs of bankruptcy.
