Sixth HIPAA Breach Case Study on ClinicNerds.com

Just uploaded to ClinicNerds a new article in the series: HIPAA Breach Case Studies.  This article is about a small clinic (two locations) that was accidentally posting their appointments on an internet calendar that was visible to the whole internet.  In addition to paying their own legal fees, the practice had to pay a HIPAA fine of $100,000 and agree to a one year HIPAA probation.   Here is a link to the case study.
