Grand jury: Natividad’s IT security a model for others
The Californian - Salinas

Natividad Medical Center is doing an exemplary job in protecting the personal health information of patients.

That’s the conclusion of a report by the Monterey County grand jury issued Monday. The grand jury looked into how well the county hospital was complying with HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. The grand jury wanted to make sure Natividad wasn’t exposing the county to any exorbitant penalties with respect to breaches in patient health information.
