Check Up on Your Notice of Privacy Practices HIPAA Compliance
Don’t make the mistake of taking your Notice of Privacy Practices lightly. Sure it may seem just like an extra piece of paperwork – that typically gets thrown away – but HIPAA has very specific rules you must comply with.
You are required to provide every patient with a Notice of Privacy Practices.
Seems simple enough, but if you get audited for HIPAA compliance, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) will request a copy of your Notice of Privacy Practices to review. The Agency will want to make sure your notice contains the required content, what processes you use to ensure compliance, and how you document patient acknowledgments.
HIPAA guidelines put the burden on YOU to ensure your patients understand their privacy rights. They have mandated that this be done with a compliant Notice of Privacy Practices. Don’t risk $50,000 fines for lack of compliance.
