Hassle Free HIPAA
Hassle Free HIPAA is the first of its kind “totally” managed service to get and maintain a practices HIPAA compliance. We have taken our successful Hassle Free IT – MD approach to “all in” service and support and designed a comprehensive program for HIPAA compliance.
As of January 17, 2013, the HIPAA Omnibus Rule has finally been released by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which will modify the HIPAA privacy, security, and enforcement rules. The package of regulations, in regard to this long-overdue HIPAA Omnibus Rule, will officially be posted on the Federal Register on January 25, 2013 and will be put into effect on March 26, 2013. Covered entities and business associates will have until September 23, 2013 to comply with the new regulations.
The release of the HIPAA Omnibus Rule not only indicates that healthcare data security and patient privacy is serious business, but that the HHS is staying on top of the industry and technology, and that they are actively monitoring and enforcing the requirements.
