On January 17, the Department of Health and Human Services released its long-awaited final HIPAA/HITECH Omnibus Rule implementing provisions of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).
The rule makes important changes in the way HIPAA covered entities, business associates and downstream subcontractors are regulated. In several respects, the rule goes beyond statutory requirements to create new requirements and expand the reach of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification and Enforcement Rules.
In particular, the webinar covers:
- Key provisions of the Omnibus Rule.
- What's really new?
- Practical implications for your business.
- Compliance steps to take now.
