“The Final HIPAA Omnibus Rule: Big Changes for Business Associates”
Thursday, February 14, 2013, 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM EST (11:00 AM – 12:30 PM PST)
The final Omnibus Rule released on January 17, 2013, will have an enormous impact on business associates (BAs). They have until September 23, 2013 to comply with the new requirements. Under the new regulations, BAs and their subcontractors are officially liable for certain requirements of the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules, whether a formal agreement exists or not. The Omnibus Rule now gives OCR the latitude to directly investigate BAs for breaches and they will shortly be incorporated into the random audit program that will likely resume later this year.
In this 90 minute session attendees will learn:
- Details of the final Omnibus Rule
- Business Associates redefined
- How BA agreements need to change
- Breach analysis changes
