Arkansas felony HIPAA conviction:
The DOJ took a plea
from a 25-year-old LPN for the highest degree HIPAA criminal charge -- disclosing PHI for personal gain.
I've corresponded with the husband in the case, and it's not as bad as it seems. Elementally, though, the government's case is solid, if the result is draconian. As the New Orleans mafiosi would say, this here's an object lesson.
UPDATE: Here's American Medical News finally catching up on the story.
