The HIPAA Privacy and HITECH ACT require organizations to have policies and procedures to assure the privacy of health information. Corridor's HIPAA Privacy and Security policies cover the necessary information to meet the requirements. A Notice of Privacy Practices is required and a template that your home health, hospice or private duty organization can customize is provided. A template of an Authorization for Disclosure can also be customized for your organization and utilized by your staff. With breach incidences on the rise, it is essential that you have policies that are implemented and followed by all staff to maintain compliance.
Special Note: This group of policies are already included in our Policies and Procedures manuals.
