All covered entity organizations that handle protected health information (PHI) must follow the HIPAA Privacy Rule. Consequently these entities and business associates must have an active HIPAA Privacy Policy to achieve HIPAA Compliance.

A covered entity is a healthcare provider, health plan, health insurer or healthcare clearinghouse. A business associate is an entity who handles protected health information on behalf of a covered entity. Under HIPAA Policy, PHI is individually identifiable health information that is used, maintained, stored or transmitted by a HIPAA covered entity. It is the responsibility of these organizations to safeguard all protected health information and demonstrate this through a carefully crafted HIPAA compliance plan with HIPAA Privacy Policies.

HIPAA Associates has HIPAA Privacy Policy templates available for all health care organizations intent on following the HIPAA Privacy Rule. In addition we also have custom made HIPAA Privacy Policies available which we can create in conjunction with your privacy officer.
