What Do We Know About Minimum Necessary Coming to HIPAA?

We recently sat down with Alisha R. Smith, RHIA, HIM Compliance Educator at Healthport, to talk about HIPAA Omnibus and one of the components that was left out of the HIPAA Omnibus final rule: minimum necessary. In the video below, Alisha talks about what your company can do to prepare for minimum necessary and what minimum necessary might require if it gets included in future HIPAA requirements.

What do you think about Alisha’s recommendations? Do you think that legislation will be passed to include minimum necessary as part of HIPAA?
