State AG HIPAA enforcement training site: I was cleaning out some emails and came across this link to HHS' training materials for State attorneys general. As you may know, prior to the HITECH Act, only the HHS Office of Civil Rights could bring a HIPAA enforcement action or levy a fine. However, the HITECH Act allows state attorneys general to also bring enforcement actions, which might make for more enforcement actions, and might also result in different interpretations in different jurisdictions. In order to help the state AGs figure out how to pursue an enforcement action, HHS conducted some seminars, which are now available online. If you're a target of a state enforcement action, it would behoove you to check this out.
