December 2002 HIPAA Law Focus
Attached is the latest copy of the HIPAA Law Focus which addresses the Guidance issued by the Department of Health and Human Service's Office of Civil Rights ("OCR") on December 4, 2002. While this latest Guidance reiterates many previously noted aspects of compliance with the Privacy Rule, the emphasis on practical applications is useful, there are a number of new observations, and the examples help understand how OCR might enforce the Privacy Rule.
If you have any questions about the Guidance, or any other aspect of HIPAA compliance, please contact any of the following members of HMSC's HIPAA Compliance Team:
