More on the South Shore Hospital Health Data Breach

As a result of the state’s review of the file loss, the hospital is forced to pay a $750,000 settlement. However, the true total is $475,000, which is the balance due based on the hospital’s pre-existing investment of $275,000 in technology, particularly data-handling upgrades.  The remaining balance will go to enforcement payments ($250,000) and a data-security education fund ($225,000).
