Understand potential penalties for different HIPAA violations and how to prevent criminal liability. Data security is a significant concern for all businesses in 2017. For health care providers and health plans, HIPAA compliance is critical to avoid significant regulatory fines and penalties. HIPAA, however, also imposes criminal liability for knowing violations of the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules. Health care providers should understand the risks of criminal liability under HIPAA so that appropriate precautions can be taken in the hiring and retention of employees who have access to protected health information. At the end of the day, your business’ reputation is on the line in the event of a data breach especially one that is caused by employee misconduct.
