HIPAA Growing Teeth, Round II?

Half a year after round one of "HIPAA Growing Teeth" we proudly give you: round deux :-)

Specifially, "CMS to check hospitals for HIPAA security compliance" paper claims that "The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will begin on-site reviews of hospitals’ compliance with security rules mandated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. "

Can these guys kick (eeeeh, "bite," not "kick," since we are talking about "growing teeth" :-)) some insecure healthcare ass? Only time will tell, but HIPAA won't be another PCI DSS (for many reasons)
