AHIMA: Proposed HIPAA Access Requirement a 'Significant Burden'
AHIMA concluded its comments by calling for OCR to develop a pilot to test the "assumptions" in the new access report requirement and consumer awareness and education.
"In addition to not knowing the impact on covered entities and business associates, the burdens will not be known if we cannot determine how the average consumer will or will not request an access report," the organization said.
