Another HIPAA Criminal Charge: Again, the basis of the case is ID theft. Leslie Howell, an employee of a counselling center in Oklahoma City, has been indicted for taking 100 patient files in the summer of 2007 and passing them along to 2 other individuals who were going to use the information in them for identity theft purposes. The case will proceed as US vs. Howell, CR 08-050. Story here, indictment here (via BNA, so subscription may be required).
