HIPAA Omnibus Rule creates changes in healthcare privacy and security practices

Health & Human Services released a monster HIPAA Omnibus rule with mega-changes to medical privacy and security law.

While physicians and other health care providers have some time comply, ultimately they will have to change their Notice of Privacy Practices and other documentation.

As well, there are significant penalties, and changes applicable to "business associates" and subcontractors.
