The Department of Health and Human Services and the Office of Civil Rights is responsible for enforcing the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules .  Resolution agreements are contracts signed by the DHHS and set forth certain obligations imposed upon a covered entity or business associate.  The DHHS has publicly announced that resolution agreements are reserved to settle investigations with more serious outcomes.  Therefore, a careful analysis of these documents will provide key insight into the DHHS enforcement activities.  This data is provided for informational purposes only and I do not warrant that the information is accurate.

This information is gleaned from publicly available sources.  Some of the dates listed are estimates or approximations based on the readily available information.  As should be obvious, I do not have all of the details for some incidents.  If you have more information about any of these events, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
