The recently published HIPAA Omnibus rule significantly modifies and expands requirements under HIPAA’s Security and Privacy Rules. The changes will require health care providers and health plans, and their business associates, to modify policies, procedures and certain agreements to protect patient health information and to avoid potential substantial penalties.
Key issues to be discussed in this Webinar include:
- Expansion of the Security Rule applicable to covered entities and business associates;
- Modifications to the Privacy Rule regarding permitted and prohibited uses, such as those for fundraising and marketing activities;
- Revised breach notification standards;
- Updates for Business Associate Agreements, Authorizations, and Notices of Privacy Practices; and
- Recommendations for compliance with the September deadlines.
