September 23rd, 2013 was the deadline for HIPAA Omnibus Final Rule compliance. It seems to have just snuck up on everybody. ChiroCode & InstaCode Institute have spoken with some clinics who say that they don't need to worry about it because ”they are just a small practice.” Please, do not wait any longer to get compliant! Small practices are being audited. Non-compliance fines are based on each infraction and for every single day not compliant. If you wait too long these fines can become overly burdensome, or even put a small practice out of business. So, where do you start? We've simplified it into three easy steps. To comply with the new HIPAA changes you need to Know, Train, and Take Action!
Step 1: Know
Get the Complete & Easy HIPAA Compliance book from ChiroCode Institute. This updated edition includes an EXCLUSIVE 6 page Ominbus Rule Checklist which identifies where to focus your attention. With it you can easily identify what has changed in the new HIPAA rules. The 45 customizable forms and the Omnibus Rule Checklist can be downloaded immediately upon purchase. You need to start using these forms right away.
