HIPAA Policies and procedures
The final HIPAA Privacy Rule changes have been approved and were released by the Department of Health and Human Services on August 14, 2002. For the most part, the approved changes were consistent with those proposed by the Bush administration. There were, however, a few minor modifications. WSU-EACPHS is in the process of revising its HIPAA information to reflect the changes in the law. The revised education materials and operating policies will be posted on this Website as they become available.
