We have prepared a 60 minute webinar* to provide plans, health care providers and business associates with a high-level compliance roadmap concerning the Omnibus Privacy Rule under HIPAA that for the most part becomes effective next month. We hope this presentation is helpful for your organization.
On January 25, 2013, the Office for Civil Rights (“OCR”) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued long-awaited final privacy and security regulations (“Omnibus Rule”) under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) to implement the changes made in 2009 by the Health Information for Economic and Clinical Health Act (“HITECH Act”). The Omnibus Rule became effective March 26, 2013, and, in general, covered entities and business associates are required to comply by September 23, 2013.
This webinar provides a high-level overview of the key requirements facing health plans, health care providers and business associates. Following a brief refresher on HIPAA, the webinar covers key compliance topics such as the new data breach notification standard, required changes to the Notice of Privacy Practices and updating business associate agreements.
