In conclusion, Texas HB300 dramatically expanded the HIPAA and HITECH Regulations already in place. The most significant change is the definition of a Covered Entity and required training. If you handle or come in contact with PHI or ePHI you are considered a Covered Entity and must take appropriate measures to protect PHI at all times.
