‘Private Practices’ Will Be Unmasked On Large Breaches Website
Health Leaders Media

Names of healthcare entities masked as “private practice” on the government website that lists organizations reporting large breaches of unsecured protected health information (PHI) will soon be revealed. The Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the enforcer of the HIPAA privacy and security rules, tells HealthLeaders Media in an e-mail it will lift the “private practice” tag on its website once the 40-day comment period is up on its April 13 Federal Register notice that modifies its existing “System of Records” practices.
