The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act requires health care providers and health plans that experienced a data breach of unsecured protected health information affecting more than 500 persons to notify the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). HHS maintains a public database of the reported breaches submitted from October 2009 to the present. THaW researchers recently constructed an interactive map to visualize the HHS database of health data breaches.
