Avoiding Privacy & Security Risk Won’t Make it Go Away. Is your practice HIPAA Compliant since the release of the Omnibus Rule? Earlier this year, HHS released the HIPAA Omnibus Rule which ushered in some important changes for patient data privacy and security as established by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. Are regulations being met at YOUR practice? September 23, 2013 was the date by which all providers were to comply with the rule, yet, many have not yet implemented the change. There is a noncompliance maximum financial penalty of $1.5 million if the newly raised standards of patient data protection are not met.
