Health Care Compliance Strategies Inc., a training firm, now is offering a "HIPAA for Business Associates" course based on expanded HIPAA privacy and security rule provisions mandated in the HITECH Act.

The Department of Health and Human Services expects sometimes this year to release an omnibus final rule covering changes to the HIPAA privacy, security, breach notification and enforcement rules, as well as provisions of the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act. Under the final rule, business associates will be treated as covered entities for all provisions of the security rule and covering the use and disclosure provisions of the privacy rule.

More information on the new course is available here.
