Two new re­ports had some harsh words for HHS’ en­force­ment of the HIPAA se­cu­rity rule on guard­ing pa­tient data. A lack of strong en­force­ment may be hin­der­ing providers’ ef­forts in the area. “I con­tinue to hear from folks who work in se­cu­rity, that as long as there is not vis­i­ble en­force­ment, it hurts their chances to get­ting the re­sources and bud­gets and em­ploy­ees they need,” says Lisa Gal­lagher, left, of HIMSS.
