Countdown to Compliance with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule

July 10, 2013

ASCs must be compliant with far-reaching changes to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act’s (HIPAA) privacy, security and breach notification requirements by September 23, 2013. Join ASCA’s next webinar to learn what you need to do now to make sure your ASC complies with the changes and how to avoid exposing your ASC to potential risks after September 23. The webinar will take place on Tuesday, July 16, at 1:00 pm ET and is being offered at a special, reduced price of $50 (just $25 for ASCA members)!

Ten years have passed since the HIPAA Security Rule came out, and much will change when the HIPAA Omnibus Rule takes effect this September. To help ASCs adapt to those changes, Michael Scarano, partner, Foley & Lardner LLP, and Leeann Habte, associate, Foley & Lardner LLP, will focus on:

  • changes that impact patient rights, and practical tips on revising ASC privacy policies;

  • changes in the risk analysis and notification obligations for breaches;

  • changes to marketing communications;

  • new requirements for business associate agreements and liability issues to consider; and

  • enforcement under the Omnibus Final Rule.

The webinar will cover both the technical issues in the revised rule and key areas where ASCs might experience exposure to risk. Register for ASCA’s "Countdown to Compliance with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule" webinar today!

In addition, there is still time to register for tomorrow’s webinar, “Social Media and Your ASC,” at 1:00 pm ET. The webinar will teach you how to harness the incredible power of social media to make a difference to your patients and achieve your organization's objectives for growth.
