The HIPAA Breach Notification Rule dictates that the proper notifications to be issued to the HHS no more than 60 days after the date of discovery of the security breach at hand. Our attorneys have seen impacted organizations wait as long as possible before alerting impacted individuals, an unfortunate habit that places consumers at risk of identity theft and fraud.
Delays to healthcare data theft notifications could result in Upstream clients personal data going unprotected for months before the victims are even aware about the data breach event. Our lawyers believe promptly sending out data breach notification letters and being transparent about the security risks for individuals is essential.
The HHS has also stated that if any healthcare entity does not comply with the 60-day rule, they may be liable for notification violations and further fines.
