2013 healthcare regulatory outlook
A long-overdue omnibus package that includes HIPAA modifications tops the list of regulations dealing with health data privacy and security issues that are pending for 2013. Also pending is an accounting of disclosures rule that, in early draft form, called for providing patients, upon request, with reports listing everyone who accessed their electronic health information. Plus, rules for Stage 3 of the HITECH Act electronic health record incentive program, which begins in 2016, are in development.
