Regs at OMB:
BMA is reporting (subscription requried)
that HHS/OCR has finally sent the final HIPAA regs to the Office of Management and Budget for scoring and final revisions. It's definitely an omnibus bill, attacking the 4 outstanding "loose ends" of HIPAA regs: finalizing the breach rules, finalizing the enforcement rules, completing the privacy and security add-ons from the HITECH rule, and GINA. They're expecting it to take the full 90 days; personally, I'd bet on more than that. But it looks like an interesting summer read.
