The Long Awaited HIPAA/HITECH Omnibus Rule is out! The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently released the final rule updating the privacy and security rules under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The changes expand many of the requirements to business associates of the entities that receive protected health information and strengthen the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Breach Notification requirements.
The Final Rule compliance date is September 23, 2013.
This online event offered an in-depth review of the revisions to Privacy and Security rules, including Enforcement and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA). If you are a part of the health care industry it will no doubt affect your organization.
