OCR and ONC launch Digital Privacy Notice Challenge

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) recently announced the Digital Privacy Notice Challenge. [1]

OCR and ONC recently developed paper model notices of privacy practices (NPP) [2] to help organizations develop updated NPPs that comply with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule. The two agencies are calling on designers, developers, and privacy experts to submit their concepts for a digital model NPP. The submission deadline is April 7.

OCR and ONC will host the Digital Privacy Notice Informational Webinar at 2 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday, February 27. Join the webinar by visiting the challenge website. [1]
