Hacking Affects Most Patients; Theft, Loss Cause More Breaches

Approximately 143,495,899 people have been affected by 1,293 HITECH Act breaches through Aug. 17, according to a HIP/SA analysis of data released by the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR). That suggested that about 8.5 million people were affected by 26 newly posted breaches.

Of the 26 newly added breaches, Business Associates accounted for two. However, those two breaches accounted for 3.9 million of the affected patients.

The full monthly analyses of the HITECH Act breaches and HIPAA complaints are available for only $30 a year.

Patients Complaining Averaging 1,500 a Month

OCR reported it received 118,939 HIPAA patient complaints as of July 31, indicating that it received 1,465 complaints in July compared to 1,548 in June and 1,636 in May, according to the latest analysis by HIP/SA. For the first seven months of 2015, OCR received approximately 1,500 complaints or more in all but one month.

The number of monthly complaints suggests that OCR now is consistently receiving about twice the number of monthly complaints that it did in the first 10 years of HIPAA enforcement.
