Course Materials

This CLE course will provide healthcare counsel with guidance on the final Omnibus Rule's modifications to HIPAA and the impact on covered entities. The panel will discuss the changes to privacy, security and breach notification requirements—and offer strategies for covered entities to ensure compliance.


On Jan. 17, 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services issued its long-awaited final Omnibus Rule, which modifies HIPAA’s privacy, security and enforcement rules and its breach notification rule. The final rule will be effective Mar. 26, 2013.

Many of “the most sweeping changes to the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules” will significantly affect how covered entities manage risk and breach notification. The risk-of-harm standard is among the changes, shifting focus from harm to the patient to whether information has been compromised.

To ensure compliance with breach notification, as well as privacy and security requirements, counsel to covered entities must carefully examine the final rule and understand the implications for covered entities.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the new requirements under the Omnibus Rule as they relate to covered entities, and offers best practices for compliance in the privacy and security practices and breach notification of covered entities.
