OCR Received 222,430 Reports of Breaches Affecting Under 500

Approximately 158,033,869 people have been affected by 1,524 HITECH Act breaches through April 17, according to a HIP/SA analysis of data released by the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR). However, OCR's database failed to contain the number of individuals affected in 23 instances,
With that as a caveat, the latest numbers suggested that 99,238 people were affected by the 32 newly listed breaches between March 18 and April 17,

According to OCR, there were more than 222,430 breaches affecting fewer than 500 patients as of March 2. The agency told HIP/SA it did not have an estimate for the number of patients affected by these smaller breaches.
