Software-as-a-Service Solutions Updated to Reflect the Omnibus Final Rule!

Clearwater Compliance for Omnibus Final Rule

We have completed a comprehensive software update to reflect the changes in the Omnibus Final Rule (OFR) promulgated by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in January. The OFR regulations are effective March 26, 2013 and, excluding special dates allowed for Business Associate Agreements, compliance is required by September 23, 2013.

Clearwater’s existing clients will automatically see the “redline” updates for the OFR in their software by accessing their subscription.   Key wording changes appear in a red font in the SaaS offerings. The changes primarily impact the Clearwater HIPAA Security Assessment™ and Clearwater HIPAA Privacy and Breach Notification Assessment™.   The Clearwater HIPAA Risk Analysis™ was not significantly impacted.
