Get Ready, 2011 To Be A Big Year for HIPAA/HITECH Regulations? I saw this on BNA yesterday but didn't want to post to it because it's subscription only, but now Dom Nicastro has noted that an Office of Civil Rights presenter at the ONC Update conference stated that sometime next year, OCR will simultaneously publish the breach notification, enforcement, and HIPAA/HITECH privacy and security regulations, as well as a new rule implementing the new accounting requirements (if you use an EMR, you have to account for treatment, payment, and healthcare operations disclosure, which were exempt under the original HIPAA accounting rules).
