The Texas House Bill 300 (HB 300) came into effect in the year 2011-12. It is also called as Texas HIPAA or HIPAA on Steroids! due to stronger provisions and required controls. As per the 72 national healthcare providers surveyed indicated they experienced a huge number of data breach and it has been found that most of the healthcare providers of all sizes appear not to take HIPAA seriously enough regarding individual health record protection. The HIPAA requirements included in HB 300 include the conditions of HIPAA with HITECH through 2010. According to this new Texas House Bill 300, it is recommended that workforce members working in the healthcare industry and directly involved in the activities that are covered under HIPAA must receive training every two years.
