Prepare Now For New HIPAA Privacy and Security Responsibilities in the Age of HITECH.

On January 17, 2013, HHS's Office of Civil Rights (OCR) released the long- awaited Final Omnibus HIPAA Privacy Rule (the Final Rule) pursuant to the HITECH Act and answered many long pondered questions for HIPAA covered-entities and a now expanded-circle of business associates concerning privacy and security of protected health care information; breach notification; and enforcement. As HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated, “the new rule will help protect patient privacy and safeguard patients’ health information in an ever expanding digital age.”

The Final Rule goes into effect this March and has A Mandate of Full Compliance by Late September. Yout Must Act Quickly to Meet These Deadlines and Have the Tools and the “Know-How” to Address the Legal and Business Challenges in this Next Layer of the Health Care Privacy and Security Matrix.
