HITECH due dates:
You saw my post yesterday -- it was the due date for most of the HITECH revisions to HIPAA. However, I've been asked a couple of times in the last few days when certian parts of the HIPAA revisions are applicable, specifically the data breach rules. The HITECH act itself says the Secretary must post regs within 180 days, and that the rules will be applicable 30 days after the regs are posted. However, the Secretary posted the data breach interim rule September 23, but gave 180 days for compliance (I guess they were applicable October 22, but weren't actually required to be complied with for 5 more months).
At any rate, AHIMA has a chart
showing the due dates for various HITECH provisions. Good stuff.
