As you know, the HITECH Act gave state attorneys general the ability to pursue legal actions for HIPAA violations in their states. I was just having a conversation yesterday with one of my favorite reporters about the fact that so few state AGs have jumped into this role. One that has is the Connecticut AG's office
, which recently fined Hartford Hospital and its business associate EMC $90,000 because an unencrypted laptop containing the PHI of almost 9,000 patients was stolen from an EMC employee's house.
