The alternative? A $750,000 HIPAA settlement emphasizes the importance of risk analysis and device and media control policies. Cancer Care Group, a radiation oncology private physician practice, was in widespread non-compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule. It had not conducted an enterprise-wide risk analysis and did not have a written policy specific to the removal of hardware and electronic media containing ePHI into and out of its facilities, even though this was common practice within the organization.

Cancer Care will now adopt a robust corrective action plan to correct deficiencies in its HIPAA compliance program. http://www.hhs.gov/news/press/2015pres/09/20150902a.html
