On January 17, 2013, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued its long-awaited Omnibus Rule, changing a broad range of HIPAA privacy, security and breach notification requirements. Every organization involved in healthcare—from providers to plans—will have to revise its privacy and security policies, privacy notices and business associate contracts to meet the new standards. What will you need to do to comply?
Find out at a new webinar, "Reshaping the Healthcare Privacy and Security Landscape: A Guide to Compliance with the New HIPAA Omnibus Rule." Manatt privacy experts will answer your key questions, including:
- What happened to the controversial "risk of harm" standard and what is the new test for determining whether there has been a data breach?
- How does HIPAA now extend to business associates?
- What are the added restrictions on using protected health information (PHI) for marketing?
- How does the new rule give greater flexibility to researchers seeking patient authorization for using PHI in research-as well as to nonprofits incorporating clinical information into fundraising efforts?
- How does the Omnibus Rule enhance patients' access to their medical records?
- How are protections governing genetic information now integrated into HIPAA?
