Research and explain at least one health care organization that has had recent breach of patient information.  What stands out to you about the specific situation?  What are your thoughts on the consequences and ways to safeguard the system? 

Please include the name of the person or question to which you are replying in the subject line. For example, “Tom’s response to Susan’s comment.”


The Orange County, New York-based Middletown Medical has acknowledged a data breach in which a security setting on one of the group’s radiology interfaces enabled unauthorized users to access electronic patient information. 

What stands out to me about this specific situation is that a report in HIPAA Journal noted that “The data breach summary submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights indicates up to 63,551 patients had their PHI (protected health information) exposed, making this one of the largest health care security incidents to be reported so far this year.

My thoughts on the consequences and ways to safeguard the system are that i think that the Middletown Medical should find out who was at fault for this breach and either fire or suspend that person, as for the ways to safeguard the system I would modify the interface and terminate any potential unauthorized access to the patient listing and electronic patient information.
