Why create HIPAA Privacy Policies?
All covered entities are required to create HIPAA Privacy Policies as per
the guidelines of HIPAA Privacy rule. Most of these policy are used in day
to day administration. These templates are updated for the HITECH act of
2009 and Omnibus rule of 2013.
"Essentially, a covered entity is required to develop and implement policies and procedures appropriate to the entity's business practices and workforce that reasonably minimize the amount of protected health information used, disclosed, and requested;"
- HIPAA Privacy Rule 45 CFR Part 160
These companies deal heavily with protected health care information, and will greatly benefit from having a quality base from which to build their privacy policies.
The templates are available in our online HIPAA store for purchase. All the templates come in Microsoft Word/excel files so you can add, change and delete content as required to complete your HIPAA privacy policies.
