HIPAA final rules -- 2011

In its semi-annual regulatory update — published December 20, 2010, in the Federal Register — HHS writes that the deadline for the final rule on modifications to the HIPAA privacy, security and enforcement rules is March 2011.

Last month, Adam H. Greene, senior health information technology and privacy specialist with the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), said the HIPAA privacy and security rule enforcer plans to release final rules regarding HITECH and HIPAA “in 2011.”   OCR’s intention is to avoid staggering compliance dates.
