Under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. §552) and HHS regulations at 45 C.F.R. Part 5, OCR may be required to release information provided in your breach notification. For breaches affecting more than 500 individuals, some of the information provided on this form will be made publicly available by posting on the HHS web site pursuant to § 13402(e)(4) of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act (Pub. L. 111-5). Additionally, OCR will use this information, pursuant to § 13402(i) of the HITECH Act, to provide an annual report to Congress regarding the number and nature of breaches that are reported each year and the actions taken to respond to such breaches. OCR will make every effort, as permitted by law, to protect information that identifies individuals or that, if released, could constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
I attest, to the best of my knowledge, that the above information is accurate.
