Recent finalized rules under the HITECH act implement major HIPAA changes. Likewise, the final "meaningful use" requirements for electronic medical records also create standards that future HIPAA enforcement will likely adopt.
The new rules carry tougher penalties for violating HIPAA, so you must be sure you're in full compliance.
Before the HIPAA "police" show up at your door, you need to update documentation and procedures to address: unauthorized data access incidents and breaches; use of medical information in marketing plans; new obligations of business associates and their subcontractors; and security of electronic records and mobile devices..
HIPAA violations may lead to inquiries by other agencies such as the OIG, state attorneys general and the SEC.
