HIPAA changes for 2019

HIPAA Compliance Management

Compliance Kit – head start on meeting all mandated requirements. Everything from an Industry-standard White Paper to a detail audit program.

HIPAA changes proposed for 2019 are getting closer. The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has favored issuing HIPAA guidelines to clear up misunderstandings with HIPAA compliance requirements, but we are now at a point when changes to HIPAA Rules are about to be made.

OCR asked 54 different questions in its RFI. Some of the main aspects being considered are in relation to:

  • Patients’ right to access and obtain copies of their protected health information and the timeframe for responding to those requests (Currently 30 days)
  • Removing the requirement to obtain written confirmation of receipt of an organization’s notice of privacy practices
  • Promotion of parent and caregiver roles in care
  • Easing of restrictions on disclosures of PHI without authorization
  • Possible exceptions to the minimum necessary standard for disclosures of PHI
  • Changes to HITECH Act requirements for the accounting of disclosures of PHI for treatment, payment and healthcare operations
  • Encouragement of information sharing for treatment and care coordination
  • Changing the Privacy Rule to make sharing PHI with other providers mandatory rather than permissible.
  • Expansion of healthcare clearinghouses’ access to PHI
  • Addressing the opioid crisis and serious mental illness

All if these are addressed in Janco’s Compliance Management toolkit.
