Review of HIPAA Rules Completed

The review of proposed rules regarding changes to the HIPAA privacy and security rules has been completed.  The rules could be released as early as this week.

The OMB reports that it has concluded its regulatory review of the rules HHS sent in April.  

While the healthcare  industry has been waiting on rules from OCR in regard to the HITECH provisions effective February 17, it remains unclear which proposed rules will be released.
