The attached Client Alert summarizes regulations recently adopted by the Department of Health and Human Services pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 – including, more specifically, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (the “HITECH Act”) - enacted by Congress earlier this year.   Among other things, the HITECH Act amended the Health Insurance and Portability Act (“HIPAA”) to impose mandatory notification requirements on covered entities and their business associates.  The new regulations provide guidance and specifications to implement the notification requirements under the HITECH Act.
