In a first, HIPAA right of access case gets settled with OCR

Florida hospital Bayfront Health St. Petersburg has reached a monetary settlement of $85,000 with the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights (OCR) for failing to comply with HIPAA’s new right of access provision. The hospital allegedly failed to give a mother timely access to records about her unborn child, only providing the requested information more than nine months after the initial request. Bayfront will also undertake a corrective action plan and be monitored by OCR for one year.
