Being in compliance with HIPAA involves not only ensuring that you provide the appropriate patient rights and controls on your uses and disclosures of Protected Health Information; but that you also have the proper policies and procedures in place. If audited or the subject of a compliance review, you will be required to show the government you have all the necessary documentation in place for safeguarding patient Protected Health Information and indicate how you addressed all required security safeguards. This starts with the fundamentals of a HIPAA compliance program.
