The Omnibus or Mega Rule, implementing the HITECH Act of 2009 significantly changed HIPAA compliance. Although it has been in effect for some time now, some of the drastic changes are still causing covered entities and business associates significant difficulties.

Why should you attend this webinar?

The Department of Health and Human Services has imposed civil money penalties (fines) as high as $4.8 million for breaches of patient confidentiality under HIPAA and other instances of HIPAA non-compliance. Not only did these laws drastically increase the civil money penalties-how we get as high as $4.8 million now, but made many more subject to the rules for HIPAA compliance and the penalties for noncompliance. Besides drastically increasing the penalties the HITECH Act and the Omnibus Rule significantly changed the rules in a number of areas regulated by HIPAA.
