In violation of HIPAA and the end user license agreement, MOGO refused to return a patient database after the end of its contract with Key Dental Group, a Florida-based dental practice.

Key Dental received a notification from its EMR vendor MOGO that it would not return the dental group’s EMR database as required at the termination of its end user license agreement. It violates both the EULA and several portions of HIPAA.

As Key Dental can no longer view or monitor the database to ensure the security of patient data, officials have begun to notify patients.
