Is Xerox guilty of medical records violations?

Texas is suing Xerox for revealing medical records.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Xerox is facing possible charges for HIPAA violations in regards to badly protected Medicaid information.

Kyle Janek, the executive commissioner of the local Health and Human Services Commission said that the company had been acting suspicious, and the state is filing a lawsuit in a district court.

The state originally sued Xerox back in May after it canceled a contract between the two of them, and since then the claims have mounted to the billions as Xerox has allegedly been irresponsible with patient data. The company has also supposedly shared private data with lawyers and others, though it argues that it has not done anything wrong.

As the source describes it, Janek believes that Xerox has needlessly jeopardized itself and its patients. He says that the lawsuit is intended to stop this dangerous behavior.

"There is a legal process for the company to get any records it needs for the lawsuit, but instead Xerox has chosen to put information of Medicaid clients at risk and force the state to take court action to protect those records," he said. He added that there's currently no information available to the state on "the security of the servers now housing the information, staff training, background checks, nothing."

This isn't the only state in contention with Xerox. Alaska is also seeking damages from Xerox, albeit a much smaller amount, claiming that the company did not provide the Medicaid payment system it said that it would. As a result, payment has been irregular and the complexity of the project has proven daunting for the local Health and Social Service department.

To get guidance in situations like this, overseers need the help of a medical billing consultant to make sure processes are correct.
