Is Your Company Ready? Legal and Privacy Implications of the HIPAA Final Omnibus Rule

In January 2013, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued the widely-anticipated HIPAA Omnibus Final Rule. The new regulation, which takes effect on March 26, expands on the current HIPAA laws and, according to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, "will help protect patient privacy and safeguard patients' health information in an ever-expanding digital age."

Join Pillsbury as we explore how the new rule will impact businesses.

  • Legal considerations of the Omnibus Rules provisions for:
    • Expanded definition of “business associate”
    • Requirements for contracts among HIPAA covered entities, business associates and subcontractors
    • Significantly revised standards for data breach reporting
    • Covered entity criminal and civil liability for acts of their agents
    • Patients’ rights to access their own protected health information
    • Using protected health information for marketing and fundraising
  • Requirements of the Rule for notices of privacy practices
  • Timelines for compliance
