OCR Identifies Continuing HIPAA Enforcement Issues, Areas of Future Guidance and Regulations
Going forward, covered entities that suffer a breach due to unencrypted PHI will get little sympathy.
The OCR is planning to issue regulations to address changes ushered in by the HITECH Act that were not captured by the 2013 Omnibus Rule. These regulations, particularly the regulations related to accounting for disclosures of PHI, could have a far-reaching impact on how covered entities and business associates comply with HIPAA in the future.
