The Health Care Law Group is pleased to announce its successful defense of a client with regard to an alleged breach of security regarding protected health information. The Department of Human and Health Services/Office for Civil Rights has dismissed its claim that the Firm’s client, a health care provider, allowed a breach of security for protected health information. When the breaches first occurred, Michele Thompson, a partner in the Firm, assisted the client in its internal investigation, navigated the client’s breach notification obligations, and ensured compliance with applicable regulations (HIPAA/HITECH). The OCR subsequently opened an investigation. After submitting a detailed response on behalf of the client, the OCR promptly dismissed the complaint and closed their investigation.
