With the HIPAA Final Rule now in place, business associates as well as subcontractors must comply with the entire Security Rule (among other aspects of HIPAA) and face direct liability for the failure to do so. Some entities may be surprised to learn they are subject to HIPAA given the recently expanded definition of “business associate.” Even for entities that are aware of HIPAA generally, there are complex legal and practical issues to consider when designing and implementing a HIPAA-compliant privacy and security program. Please join me and my colleagues Jeff Poston and Robin Campbell for a complimentary webinar addressing these and other issues related to the Omnibus HIPAA Final Rule, including:

  • HIPAA applicability to Business Associates under the final rule
  • Regulatory reasons for compliance
  • Business benefits of compliance
  • Implications for breach response
  • Importance of training
  • And more, including your questions

The 90-minute webinar will take place on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 1 pm Eastern. Registration is available here.
