HIPPA Omnibus Compliance The article titled Five HIPPA Omnibus Compliance Myths goes over some of the common myths associated with the Omnibus Rule which was implemented in September of 2014 ( Snell, 2014). It lays out situations that people believe the rule would not apply to them or certain situations. It sets the facts straight. The main points discussed by the author were that the new advances that stem from the new Omnibus Rule makes compliance stricter and seems to be a little more difficult to stay within compliance areas. Making each and every person who comes within reach of patient health information, all business associates, as well as any subcontractor, must complete a business associate agreement stating that they will stay in compliance with HIPPA if they encounter patient health information ( Snell, 2014). It states that protected health information no matter what the circumstances are, is just that, protected. It takes a whole new look at the seriousness of HIPPA compliance and seems to make it that much more difficult to comply.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
