Alston & Bird has developed a checklist tool to assist Covered Entities, Business Associates, and Subcontractor Business Associates to plan their implementation of the January 25, 2013 Omnibus HIPAA Rule. The Omnibus HIPAA Rule significantly amended the HIPAA/HITECH Act Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, and Enforcement Rules, as summarized in an Alston & Bird HIPAA Advisory issued on January 25, 2013.
This checklist is intended to guide discussions regarding needed updates and revisions; additional topics and requirements may apply in specific situations. This checklist was prepared by Angela Burnette, Paula Stannard and Dawnmarie Matlock. If you have any questions or if we can assist with any of these tasks, please contact Angela, Paula, Dawnmarie or your Alston & Bird attorney. Contact information is provided in the linked checklist and HIPAA Advisory.
