The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) in collaboration with the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) recently released its new updated guidance for the privacy and security of electronic information.  The Guide to Privacy and Security of Electronic Health Information (the Guide), last published in 2011, is designed to help healthcare organizations and medical professionals understand how federal privacy and security requirements fit into their practices.  The Guide is useful to a broad range of healthcare organizations, medical professionals, and their business associates by providing a good overview of the HIPAA privacy, security, and breach notification requirements, the Medicare and Medicaid electronic health records (meaningful use) incentive programs, in addition to considerations to take into account when dealing with digital healthcare platforms.
