California Hospital Data Breaches: I noted a few weeks ago that several California hospitals had been fined for breaches of confidential information. Jana Aagaard posted on the AHLA listserve earlier this week a good set of resources to help understand California breach rules, which apply to hospitals and nursing homes but not individual physicians. A copy of the law can be found here. A list of recent penalties imposed by the state can be found here. And some further analysis behind the recent breaches can be found here.

Lots of good info there.
