The HHS Office for Civil Rights has scheduled four Web seminars to explain the omnibus final HIPAA rule to modify the privacy, security, breach notification and enforcement rules, as well as the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act. The rule was published on January 25, became effective on March 26 and has a compliance date of September 23, 2013.

The Web seminars, being presented with assistance from the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange, are targeted to small clinical practices with a focus on practical strategies for implementing changes in the rules.

The 90-minute seminars are scheduled for June 14 (overview of the omnibus rule), June 28 (covering the privacy rule), July 17 (covering the breach and enforcement rules) and July 28 (covering business associate provisions). Officials also will update the forthcoming HIPAA Audit program. The 90-minute seminars begin at 1:00 Eastern Time and registration is available here.
