HIPAA enforcement under the HITECH Act:
The HITECH provisions in the so-called stimulus bill revise HIPAA and add additional enforcement powers, but how will they really be enforced? We'll have to wait for regulations, but in the interim, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has issued a white paper
indicating how it will carry out the new enforcement powers. Unfortunately, there's not much there
other than a reiteration of the HITECH provisions. More specifics, please.
