HHS Promises HIPAA Review

 At a July 27 address at The Heritage Foundation, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, explained that HHS will be undertaking several updates to health privacy regulations over the coming months, including updates to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and 45 CFR Part 2 (Part 2) regulations.

The process is expected to begin in the next couple of months. Requests for information on HIPAA and Part 2 will be issued, then action will be taken to reform both sets of rules to remove obstacles to value-based healthcare.

 Rule changes are also going to be made to remove some of the barriers to data sharing which are currently hampering efforts by health care providers to expand the use of electronic health technology.
 
HIPAA Journal notes that these requests for information are part of a comprehensive review of current regulations that are hampering the ability of doctors, hospitals, and payers to improve the quality healthcare services and coordination of care while helping to reduce healthcare costs.
