After a 2.5 year wait the final HIPAA Omnibus Rule has been released with 563 pages of changes to HIPAA as part of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The final omnibus rule will be effective on March 26, but covered entities and business associates have until Sept. 23 to comply.
CRHC’s Senior Advisor, David Ginsberg has reviewed the new rule. He says, “It is actually four separate rules affecting HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification. Most of the rules must be implemented by September 23, 2013”. David stressed the importance for hospital and clinic HIPAA compliance staff to attend the webinar.
