Save Time and Resources On Your Journey to a Strong Privacy Compliance Program!
Leon Rodriguez, the former Director of the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), highlighted this advice to healthcare organizations to improve HIPAA compliance and the security of PHI: “Ensure vigilant implementation of privacy and security policies and procedures, as well as tough sanctions for violating them.”
Yet, findings from OCR investigations and audits point to the failure of organizations to develop, and document Privacy policies and procedures. Without written procedures, how will your workforce know what is expected of them in safeguarding the Privacy of PHI entrusted to your organization? Every organization that creates, receives, maintains or transmits PHI must have written documentation of the policies and procedures implemented to safeguard the PHI in their custody and uphold the rights of the PHI owners. But if you are like most organizations, you don’t have the time or resources to get it done, and done right!
Take the time and guess work out of the process of developing, documenting and streamlining policies and procedures that align with the Privacy rules and regulations. Clearwater’s Privacy Policies and Procedures templates are thorough, complete, are easily tailored to your organization, and will solidify your commitment to protect the PHI under your custody…and your reputation!
You can create your organization’s HIPAA Privacy policies and procedures to satisfy the stringent HIPAA requirements in a fraction of the time with the Clearwater HIPAA Privacy Policies & Procedures™ ToolKit to guide you. Clearwater’s Privacy Policies and Procedures™ ToolKit will provide a Table of Contents listing the essential documentation your organization should have; a standardized format to ensure all appropriate elements of sound documentation; and a template for each applicable policy/procedure needed so you can customize to match your situation and business processes.
