Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Multi-Specialty Collection Services LLC Likely to Pay More Than $4 Million to Settle a Class Action Claim

Stanford Hospital & Clinics and one of its former contractors will likely pay more than $4 million to settle a class action claim that they violated a state privacy law by allowing the medical information of 20,000 emergency room patients to be posted online for nearly a year. The settlement was tentatively approved by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle. Shana Springer sued the hospital and Los Angeles-based Multi-Specialty Collection Services LLC for $20 million on Sept. 28, 2011. She alleged that her information and that of other patients treated in the hospital's emergency room between March 1, 2009, and Aug. 31, 2009, was illegally displayed on a public website for almost a year, beginning on Sept. 9, 2010. The Confidentiality of Medical Information Act prohibits health care providers from disclosing patient records without written consent. The compromised information in this case included medical record numbers, hospital account numbers, billing charges, and emergency room admission and discharge dates. The psychiatric diagnosis of a Santa Clara man was also disclosed. No credit card or Social Security numbers were disclosed. Under terms of the tentative settlement, the patients would receive a little more than $100 each. In addition, the hospital would have to fund a program for two years that trains medical professionals to protect patient records. Kabateck said the program could cost the hospital up to $1 million.
