Short HITECH-HIPAA Checklist for the New Year:
  1. Put together a breach notification policy.
  2. Update your business associate agreement form.
  3. Find all your existing business associate agreements and update them.
  4. Educate your staff about HITECH.
  5. Encrypt if you can, or at least where you can.
  6. Have and enforce a sanction policy (could be part of #1).

This is also a good time to review all your HIPAA policies and re-educate your staff. The rules have changed, and the risks are much, much higer.
