In this month’s installment of Fast Break, partner Scott McBride and Krista Barnes, Deputy Chief Compliance Officer at MD Anderson, will analyze the significant decision in the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit for The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

The decision is a case of first impression in the federal courts and involved an appeal of a proposed civil money penalty (CMP) of $4.3 million related to a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) data breach enforcement action brought by the US Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights (OCR). The decision vacated the CMP and will impact future OCR enforcement actions across the healthcare industry. Join us as we discuss this case and the future of HIPAA data breach enforcement.

Topics will include:

  • Important case background information
  • Legal argument presented by the parties
  • Discussion of the decision
  • Impact of the decision on enforcement activities
