OCR/HHS Proposed HIPAA Privacy Rule Changes


December  1st, 2021 1:30 - 2: 30 pm

This workshop is FREE to any DMHAS contracted agency or NJAMHAA member agency.

On December 10, 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a Proposed Rule introducing new substantial changes to the HIPAA Privacy Rule for the first time since it was last touched as a result of the HITECH amendments. A Final Rule is expected either by the end of 2021, or early 2022. 

This Webinar will review in detail the changes that HHS has proposed to HIPAA, such as:

  • Proposed changes to HIPAA’s Right of Access, including:
    • Permitting patients to take photographs of their PHI;
    • Changing the maximum allowable response time from 30 days to 15 days;
    • Permitting patients to transfer to a 3rd party only such ePHI that is maintained in an EMR;
    • Permitting patients to request their PHI be transferred to a personal health App;
    • Setting specific restrictions regarding charging patients a fee for their ePHI, including posting a fee schedule on their websites for any costs that are permitted to be charged for access and copies of PHI; and
    • Ensuring patients are able to direct the sharing of ePHI maintained in an EHR between other covered entities.

 Eliminating HIPAA’s requirement for covered entities to obtain written confirmation that it has provided each patient with a HIPAA Notice of Privacy practices;

  • Permitting covered entities to disclose a patient’s PHI to avert a threat to health or safety when harm is “seriously and reasonably foreseeable” (currently, the harm is “serious and imminent”);
  • Permitting covered entities to make certain uses and disclosures of patient’s PHI based on their good faith belief that it is in the “best interest” of the individual;
  • Adding the minimum necessary standard exception for individual-level care coordination and case management uses and disclosures, regardless of whether the activities constitute treatment or health care operations;
  • Broadening the definition of healthcare operations to cover care coordination and case management; and more…….
