Delay becomes more semi-official:
AIS is reporting
that HHS' Office of Civil Rights is again indicating that it will delay enforcement of the portions of the HITECH Act that went into effect February 17, at least until regulations have been published. Again, caution should be exercised: while OCR might not come after you, the law is still the law, and you may be subject to an enforcement action by an individual or a state Attorney General (even though OCR might stay its hand, there's no reason a state AG would have to).
