8 Weeks Until the HIPAA Omnibus Rule Compliance Date — How to Make the Most of Your Time

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.  On July 23, 2013, Dianne Bourque and Kimberly Gold of Mintz Levin's Health Law Practice will present a webinar to assist covered entities and business associates in their efforts to comply with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule.

Topics covered by the webinar include:

  • 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.
