Developing HIPAA Policies and Procedures


One of the major requirements of the health care organization to be HIPAA compliant is to develop and implement a set of HIPAA privacy and security policies and procedures. This can be a daunting task for those not knowing where to start and what a set of HIPAA privacy and security policies and procedures should look like. For the cost-conscious health care organization, the HIPAA policies and procedures can have multiple uses:  first, they can become a basis for training the health care organization workforce; second, they can be used as a basis for conducting a HIPAA self-assessment; and third, they can be used to demonstrate due diligence should there be a breach or an external HIPAA compliance audit.

In today’s world, it is not necessary that the health care organization spend significant funds to develop a set of HIPAA privacy and security policies and procedures from scratch. The health care organization can likely find templates on the internet that can be used as a starting point to customize HIPAA policies and procedures to be unique for the health care organization.

Course Objectives:

There are three situations where having a set of HIPAA policies and procedures are needed:

• First, the policies and procedures become a good reference to ensure that all areas are addressed for becoming HIPAA compliant
• Second, the HIPAA regulations REQUIRE covered entities and business associates to have a set of policies and procedures directing the workforce to perform their tasks in a controlled environment.  Having a set of policies and procedures is positive evidence of the health care organization exercising due diligence
• Third, if there is a breach, the health care organization needs to demonstrate that it has proactively implemented a comprehensive set of HIPAA policies and procedures to keep any penalties to a minimum
