Event Description

Overview: The Omnibus Rule finalizes the modifications to the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, and enforcement rules to implement many of the privacy, security, and enforcement provisions of the HITECH Act and to make other changes to the Rules, modifies the breach notification rule, and finalizes the modifications to the HIPAA Privacy Rule to strengthen privacy protections for genetic information.

Generally speaking, covered entities and business associates will have until September 23, 2013, to comply with these new provisions. This 60-minute webinar gives you an excellent overview of the new rule changes. Learn what actions to take now to achieve HIPAA compliance with the new Omnibus Rule, to pass an audit or an investigation, and to avoid civil money penalties and criminal convictions. 

Why should you Attend: Have you read the 563-page Omnibus (Mega) Rule? No? Do you have any idea what you need to do now to comply with it? Do you know what could happen to you if you are not in compliance with HIPAA and the Omnibus Rule changes? (Hint: The answer could involve as much as millions of dollars and a free trip to Leavenworth.) Do you know about the changes in HIPAA enforcement that it requires? Can you explain the changes to the breach notification rule?

Do you know whether you are responsible for the breaches involving protected health information (“PHI”) of your business associates or your downstream business associates? Do you have new and/or revised business associate agreements in place that reflect the Omnibus Rule changes? Do you know whether your marketing efforts comply with HIPAA and the new Omnibus Rule changes? Have you updated your Risk Analysis and developed and implemented a compliance plan based on that Risk Analysis to reflect the new Omnibus Rule changes? Could you and your organization pass an audit or an investigation right now, or at least by the compliance date of September 23, 2013, that included the Omnibus Rule changes?
