The North Texas Healthcare Compliance Professionals Association (NTHCPA) invites members and other interested health care compliance professionals to prepare to meet upcoming HIPAA tests by coming for “Tutoring On OCR’s Latest HIPAA Homework” from attorney Cynthia Marcotte Stamer at our next NTHCPA Study Group Luncheon on Tuesday,  March 18, 2014 from 11:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

About the Program

A series of supplemental guidance issued by the Department of Health & Human Services Office of Civil Rights (OCR) in recent weeks is giving health care providers, health plans, health care clearinghouses (Covered Entities) and their business associates even more to do in reviewing and updating their policies, practices and training for handing protected health information (PHI) beyond bringing their policies and practices into line with OCR’s restatement and update to the Modifications to the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Enforcement, and Breach Notification Rules Under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act; Other Modifications to the HIPAA Rules; Final Rule (Omnibus Final Rule) OCR published January 25, 2013.

Covered Entities generally have been required to comply with most requirements the Omnibus Final Rule’s restated regulations restating OCR’s regulations implementing the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules to reflect HIPAA amendments enacted by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act since the Omnibus Final Rule took effect on March 26, 2013 and to have updated business associate agreements in place since September 23, 2013.  Meanwhile, the Omnibus Final Rule generally has required business associates have updated business associate agreements in place and otherwise to have come into compliance with all of the applicable requirements of the Omnibus Final Rule since September 23, 2013.  Although these deadlines are long past, many Covered Entities and business associates have yet to complete the policy, process and training updates required to comply with the modifications implemented in    the Omnibus Final Rule.

In addition to the Omnibus Final Rule, however, Covered Entities and Business Associates also have more homework to do to comply with a series of supplemental guidance issued by OCR since it published the Omnibus Final Rule including:

With OCR stepping up both audits and enforcement and penalties for violations higher than ever since the HITECH Act amended HIPAA, Covered Entities and business associates should act quickly to review and update their policies, practices and training to implement any adjustments needed to maintain compliance and manage other risks under these ever-evolving HIPAA standards.

Scribe for the ABA JCEB Annual Agency Meeting With OCR and a widely published author and popular speaker on HIPAA and other health industry concerns, Ms. Stamer will brief participants on these and other HIPAA developments and lead a discussion of practical challenges and options for managing these and other HIPAA compliance and risk management challenges.
