HHS Requests for Information About Health Privacy Disclosures Under HITECH Act Changes to HIPAA Privacy Rule
Office for Civil Rights [OCR], U.S. Department of Health and Human Services [HHS]Link to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
May 3, 2010
3 pages, in Federal Register. Excerpt: [T]he Health Information Technology for Ecnomic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act expands an individual's right [HIPAA] to receive an accounting of disclosures of protected health information made by HIPAA covered entities and their business associates. In particular, [it] requires [HHS] to revise the HIPAA Privacy Rule to require covered entities to account for disclosures of protected health information to carry out treatment, payment, and health care operations if such disclosures are through an electronic health record. This document is a request for information (RFI) to help us better understand the interests of individuals with respect to learning of such disclosures, the administrative burden on covered entities and business associates of accounting for such disclosures, and other information that may inform [HHS'] rulemaking in this area.
