Survey Shows Lack of Provider Compliance with HIPAA Security Rules "A large segment of healthcare organizations are still not in compliance with the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996. As well, more than one-quarter reported data security breaches, though a recent survey found there is also a lack of concern about the situation.

In fact, when asked to rank their biggest obstacles to HIPAA compliance, respondents placed 'no public relations or branding problems anticipated with noncompliance' and 'no anticipated legal consequences to noncompliance' at the top of the list."
