Journal of AHIMA: HHS Office for Civil Rights signals renewed privacy focus, HHS Chief Privacy Officer position defunded

“The recent defunding of the Chief Privacy Officer (CPO) position by the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) makes practical sense for the healthcare industry and the national budget. The position has been vacant for the past year, and during this time Deven McGraw has successfully served as acting CPO and deputy director for health information privacy. McGraw has proven effective in filling both roles and will remain with OCR.” Source: Journal of AHIMA, 9/22/17, OCR Change Signals Renewed Privacy Focus for HIM Leaders, Rita Bowen
