Disciplinary Guidelines for HIPAA Violations
When protected health information is improperly accessed, used or released, or when an individual fails to comply with HIPAA Policies and Procedures; an individual may be disciplined based on the individual's classification. The specific discipline administered will depend on the nature and severity of the violation.
