Effective September 1, 2012, the H.B. 300 places stricter requirements on covered entities to protect patient privacy and expands the definition of covered entities beyond that of HIPAA and HITECH. Individuals and entities determined to be "covered entities" under H.B. 300 will face several new requirements, including: new training for employees regarding PHI; additional patient rights related to electronic medical records; the most far reaching requirements for data breach notification and the potential for increased penalties for noncompliance.
