Data breach results in $4.8 million HIPAA settlements

New York and Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University will pay a $4.8 million HIPAA fine, the largest settlement to date. The data breach occurred when an in-house developer accidently compromised a network shared by the two organizations, leading to PHI being not only open to the internet, but indexed in Google search results. The health system learned of the breach when the family member of a deceased patient reported finding the medical records of her relative online.

State-Based Obamacare Exchanges Cost Far More Than the Federal Market

State-based health insurance exchanges are paying significantly more per enrollment than states that choose to rely on the federal Healthcare.gov site, according to a new Robert Wood Johnson Foundation report.

    The state exchanges are a complete boondoggle. The federal exchange project was interesting to watch just from a large IT project perspective. We have all seen those types of projects go through the phases of doom and recovery. Knowing the quality of the state run IT teams, its a joke they were allowed these funds to great redundant exchanges. Just a complete waste of money and effort.
