The countdown is underway — the HIPAA Omnibus Rule compliance deadline is  less than two months away!

Covered entities and business associates have until September 23, 2013 to comply with important, new requirements under the HIPAA Omnibus Rule. To avoid penalties for noncompliance, organizations will need to update policies, procedures, forms and practices.  HIPAA is not just a concern for the health care industry – its compliance obligations, civil and criminal penalties extend to all kinds of downstream entities, no matter how remote, that handle health care data.  Mintz Levin has planned a webinar for those who are leaving compliance with new HIPAA Omnibus Rule requirements until the last minute.

This webinar will outline steps to assist in that effort, including:

  • What to do if you currently have a comprehensive, effective program
  • What to do if your compliance program consists of a dusty binder of policies and procedures
  • Approaches (and deadlines) for updating business associate agreements
  • What we expect from the Office for Civil Rights in the near future
