Since 1996, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has experienced many updates and impacted an increasing number of organizations. January 25, 2013 brought in the most recent changes with the US Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) publication of the final omnibus rule which modifies the privacy, security, enforcement and breach notification regulations of HIPAA.
