Many providers not making IT preparation for looming HIPAA rule

Share this content:
Despite having less than a year to be ready, many providers are still not prepared for HIPAA 5010. Among facilities participating in a recent HIMSS-sponsored survey, “one third report they either don't have a plan for [HIPAA 5010] testing, or won't test until the fourth quarter.” The rule is scheduled to take effect in January.
