The last two years have seen significant activity in federal law governing health information privacy. In 2019, an Office of Civil Rights enforcement focus on patient right of access to health information emerged in response to an increase in complaints from patients. More than a dozen significant enforcement actions in the past year shed light on how the Office of Civil Rights views patient access rights under HIPAA. In a related development, the 21st Century Cures Act includes a response to the practice of Information Blocking, and extensive new regulations implementing those provisions are now in effect. And in December, 2020, CMS published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking proposing several enhancements to existing HIPAA privacy regulations. This presentation will connect the dots in these three emerging areas of health information privacy law.
