N.Y. hospital pays $387K to resolve potential HIPAA violations

Health IT SmartBrief | May 24, 2017

The HHS received $387,200 from St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York as part of a settlement resolving alleged HIPAA violations, and the provider also agreed to a corrective action plan regarding its protected health information usage and disclosure procedures and policies. A staff member at the hospital's Spencer Cox Center for Health faxed a patient's PHI to the patient's employer, rather than sending it to the patient's personal post office box, according to an investigation by the HHS Office for Civil Rights.
