Doctors’ Management Services (DMS) has settled with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) following a breach of protected health information affecting over 206,000 people. DMS admitted a third party had been active on its server from April 2017 to December 2018.

As part of the settlement, DMS will enact measures to improve its data protection procedures.
