Please join GCI Global Healthcare Solutions as we hold an free educational meeting to discuss the new 2013 Omnibus HIPAA/HITECH Final Rule and how it affects Home Health Care organizations.
This Final Rule marks the most sweeping changes to the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules since they were first implemented. These changes not only greatly enhance a patient’s privacy rights and protections, but also strengthen the ability the HHS to vigorously enforce the HIPAA privacy and security protections, regardless of whether the information is being held by a health plan, a health care provider, or one of their business associates or subcontractors.
- Did you know that healthcare covered entities, their business associates and subcontractors, must comply with the HIPAA/HITECH Final Rule by September 23, 2013?
- Did you know that organizations that fail to comply with the Final Rule are subject to civil and criminal penalties that can range up to $1.5 million per HIPAA violation?
The need for an effective HIPAA compliance program has never been greater!
