Re: HIPAA Certified
Good ideas here, Gary. And that wisdom also extends to other devices, doesn't it, like printers? That, at least, is what i have learned from other experts in the past.

Re: Speaking Out
The case has not yet been resolved. The dental surgeon is waiting to hear what happens from the government but is trying to mitigate his damage by taking the steps I outlined in the article, both in hopes of reducing his risk and because he really doesn't want to run the risk of exposing patient data. He felt terrible, of course.

Re: Exceptional reporting!!!
Thank you so much, @JerryWebb. As you so accurately point out, each state may have its own variations above and beyond HIPAA. I know Florida, where I live, has its own rules and you mention Texas. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach and if I was a healthcare provider, especially a smaller one, I would take some outside expert counsel here.

Speaking Out
Although "Dr. Jones" didn't want to use his own name, he wanted to speak to me because he was concerned other small practices could easily find themselves in the same position: Thinking they'd done everything they could to secure patient data and safe, due to business associate contracts. As he discovered, this is not the case.
