HIPAA Omnibus Rule compliance deadline is September 23, 2013. If you or any of your clients are business associates, have you (they) done everything to be in compliance? This presentation will cover the definition of a business associate and when a law firm may fall within that definition. Provisions of the Omnibus Rule that affect business associates will be discussed along with a checklist that business associates can use to confirm their compliance with the Omnibus Rule. The presentation will also touch upon business associate agreements and provisions important for that document from the business associates' perspective.
