The new HIPAA Breach Notification Rule required by the HITECH Act within the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 went into effect September 23, 2009, requiring all HIPAA covered entities and business associates to follow a number of steps to be in compliance. If there is a breach of protected health information that risks causing financial, reputational, or other harm to an individual, the breach must be reported to the individual, and all such breaches must be reported to the Secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services at least annually.
There are additional steps to take if the breach affects more than 500 individuals, including media notices and immediate notification of HHS. For every potential breach of PHI, the entity will have to determine if the information breached presents a reasonable risk of harm to the individuals, and take action to notify them if there is a risk of harm. Entities should also be aware that the harm standard may be modified upon release of a final rule in
2011, and entities should be ready to adjust to changes in the rules. Entities must adopt incident handling and breach notification policies and procedures to ensure accurate reporting and documentation of breaches, and must take steps to protect information from breaches by using encryption and proper disposal methods meeting Federal standards.
Entities must follow the standards and specifications of the HIPAA Security Rule to protect information from breaches and must negotiate new Business Associate Agreements to include liability for breach notification and requirements for timely
