Hyannis, MA (PRWEB) September 11, 2013

This week Weatherbee Resources, Inc published the nation’s only manual created specifically to help hospices comply with the 2013 HIPAA Omnibus Rule.

The HIPAA Omnibus Rule: What Hospices Need to Know and Do, written by hospice HIPAA compliance expert Heather Wilson, PhD, explains the modifications to HIPAA requirements brought about by the HITECH Act and the HIPAA Omnibus Rule.

Hospices can modify these sample templates to assist with their compliance efforts before the September 23, 2013 deadline.

Focusing exclusively on helping hospices understand what they need to know and do to comply with the 2013 HIPAA Omnibus Rule, hospices were purchasing the new manual within minutes of its publication.

The 2013 manual focuses on the significant changes in HIPAA compliance requirements as a result of the 2013 HIPAA Omnibus Rule.
