Connecticut AG Takes HIPAA Action: 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.
