Audio Conference on CD-ROM with Conference Materials
If your organization is like most health and managed care organizations, there were few existing policies that readily met HIPAA requirements as spelled out in the regulations.
But, policies and procedures surrounding patient privacy and confidentiality and information security are the foundation of your organization's program of HIPAA implementation and compliance.
Your organization's system-wide policies and procedures dealing with HIPAA are required under the law.
Under § 164.530, the regulation's administrative requirements, a "covered entity must implement policies and procedures with respect to protected health information that are designed to comply with the standards, implementation specifications, or other requirements" of the HIPAA regulations. "The policies and procedures must be reasonably designed, taking into account the size of and the type of activities that relate to protected health information undertaken by the covered entity, to ensure such compliance," the rules state.
To help you insure that your organization meets the policy and procedure requirements of the HIPAA regulations, a special audio conference, "Developing Your Organization's HIPAA Policies and Procedures Under the Final HIPAA Rules," has been recorded on CD-ROM.
Even if you are reasonably confident that your organization's policies and procedures are now in or will be compliant with the regulation's requirements, it may make good business sense to listen in to make sure your P&P's are consistent with HIPAA mandates.
And, because every organization is unique, there are no "cookie-cutter" models that you can rely on to help you deal with covered entity requirements.
