"OCR should  enter small-breach information into its case-tracking system or a searchable database linked to it;  maintain complete documentation of corrective action;  develop an efficient method in its case-tracking system to search for and track covered entities that reported prior breaches;  develop a policy requiring OCR staff to check whether covered entities reported prior breaches; and  continue to expand outreach and education efforts to covered entities."
