An recently published article by Modern Healthcare noted the extraordinary level of time and effort that it is estimated that our healthcare system will need to expend in order to comply with the new HIPAA privacy and security rules.

With the publication of the HIPAA Final Omnibus Rule, healthcare providers and other covered entities are once again reassessing their privacy and security programs with an eye toward compliance. In light of new questions and requirements, we talked to Terrill Clements, Senior Equal Opportunity Specialist at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR), to find out about new developments.
