Phoenix Cardiac Surgery inadvertently posted the clinical and surgical appointments of patients on an Internet-based calendar that was publicly accessible.  The error went unnoticed for an unspecified amount of time.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) investigated the error and determined that Phoenix Cardiac Surgery had a number of Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) violations.  Phoenix Cardiac Surgery agreed to pay HHS a settlement totalling $100,000 and to comply with HIPAA. The resolution agreement can be found here.
