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.
