Why create HIPAA Privacy Policies for Covered Entity and Business Associate?
Covered Entities and Business Associates are required to establish effective HIPAA Privacy Policies and Procedures, ensuring that employees and sensitive information are protected and secure. HIPAA policies are implemented daily, therefore a necessary component for all healthcare businesses is to establish an effective arrangement of policies and procedures that govern everyday activity- enabling healthcare professionals to streamline their practices, and hold employees and administrators accountable for maintaining the privacy of PHI.
HIPAA Privacy Policies and Procedures templates are updated with the HITECH act of 2009 and the Omnibus rule of 2013.
