It’s disheartening when companies don’t bother to follow up with job candidates to let them know that they did not get the job. Sometimes you can do the following up yourself.

Couple of points
Yes HR should be notifying individuals directly when they have interviewed and not received an offer of employment. Thats common courtesy.
But sometimes these things are delayed because something in the process has caused a delay. It could be the hiring manager wants to interview more candidates, or has decided on a second round of interviews, the approval for the job can be withdrawn (sad but it happens especially in this climate).
I've been on both sides. I had a great interview with one employer and was left hanging for six months while they tried to sort things out after a merger. They knew they wanted me, but the merger put the approval for the job posting on hold. Eventually I found another job.
And I will add this for all job seekers out there. Never, ever ever stop looking until you have a signed job offer in your hand with a salary, title, and start date. Do not take a great interview for granted. And know as great as that job you are hoping for might be, an even better one may be coming available. Do not stop till you are hired.
