[Histonet] HIPPA rules and fax transmittals going to wrong person

From:Georgia Stewart

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone
In this era of HIPPA rules and regulations in the United States, I have not seen any comment on HIPPA as it relates to fax transmittal's of reports that might go to the wrong person/facility.  If a report goes to the the wrong person/facility, isn't this is a breach of patient confidentiality covered by HIPPA?  How are you handling faxs that go, or might go, to the wrong person/facility?  
Appreciate your comments.
