According to this
, there are approximately 770,000 physicians in the US. Compare that with the number below of the 5-year cost, that puts physician HIPAA compliance costs at $1,000 per doctor. Obviously, there are some economies of scale, so multi-physician practices will likely pay less per doctor than single-physician practices. Also, keep in mind that it's an insurance company study that came up with this number for physicians, so it might be on the low side.
Make sure you are doing what you need to do.
