(HIPAA) Compliance Deadline
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) protects highly sensitive patient data and requires that any company handling this data comply with a set of security measures to ensure that no patient information is ever compromised. However, with all of the changing technologies, HIPAA frequently has to enact new security standards and set deadlines for company HIPAA compliance.
HIPAA compliance deadlines are dates that all companies handling sensitive patient data must meet any new security standards. There are many HIPAA compliance deadlines throughout the years and it can be extremely difficult to keep up with them. That’s why you need a reliable HIPAA service company who can keep up with the HIPAA compliance deadlines for your business to ensure that it remains HIPAA compliant.

On January 17, 2013, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a final rule (Omnibus Rule)to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
New Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) and Data Usage Agreements (DUAs) must comply with Omnibus Rule requirements by September 23, 2013; otherwise, BAAs and DUAs that only became non-compliant after the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) released the Omnibus Rule may remain in effect until September 22, 2014 (or until the applicable agreement renewal date).
Any new BAAs must be compliant by Sept 23, 2013.
