The Office of Civil Rights announced in early July that they have settled 11 new HIPAA Patient Right of Access cases, bringing the total number to 38 in the past two and a half years and the total fines to over $3,000,000. These cases occur when providers fail to provide patient records to requestors within the 30 days allotted by HIPAA. The largest of the new fines was $240,000 for failure to provide complete records to one patient. Previously the largest fine for one failure was $130,000.

Plastic surgery has been experiencing a rather prosperous period in recent years. This surge first began in late 2020, as online meetings and interactions brought on by the pandemic led many people to wish to have procedures that would allow them to be more photogenic for such video interactions. This sudden surge in cosmetics procedures came to be known as the “Zoom Boom” and continued well into 2021.

Well, folks… another EDGE user conference is in the books. EDGE 2022 marked our initial return to an in-person conference venue after going virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and all things considered, it was a huge success. This year’s Nextech user conference hosted roughly 900 attendees, staff, and exhibitors from all over the country and in multiple specialties. However, we realize that not everyone was able to come to this year’s EDGE, so let's recap all the awesome things that happened.

The Super Bowl is upon us once again, ladies and gentlemen. On Sunday, February 13, 2022, the Los Angeles Rams will face off against the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, CA. Many fans are especially excited for the event this year, since this is the first Super Bowl in quite some time that Tom Brady won’t be playing in (and, based on a his recent announcement that he plans to retire, it’s very likely Brady won’t be returning to the Super Bowl). And, of course, many of the Gen Xers out there (myself included) are anticipating an epic halftime show with performances from Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Mary J. Blige.
