Form solutions that make you confident that you are in compliance with HIPAA regulations.

make HIPAA privacy worry

 Keep Practices Compliant with forms specially designed to meet HIPAA Requirements!

  As of April 14, 2003 HIPAA requires that healthcare practices take certain steps, and provides for steep penalties for those that do not comply.  Under HIPAA, Patients are now given new fundamental rights, including:

  • the right to inspect and/or obtain copies of their medical record
  • the right to request amendments to their record
  • the right to request restrictions on the disclosure of their protected health information
  • the right to ask practices to communicate with them in a certain manner
  • the right to ask practices for a log of who has accessed their protected health information

Our forms were created with the understanding that running a healthcare practice is a difficult job, and that added burdens practices can have serious negative effects.  Best of all, the forms are easy to use, and will help meet the new federal requirements.

Use these forms to:
-
Comply with Federal HIPAA Privacy Regulations
- Document information necessary to show that you are HIPAA compliant
- Integrate easily with your existing medical record system
- Help simplify administrative processes
- Ensure that patients privacy rights are not violated

A Very Brief Overview of HIPAA

The Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) was signed into law in 1996.  The federal regulation includes mandates that set standards for protecting the privacy of medical & health information; now referred to as Protected Health Information (PHI).  PHI is information that is maintained by healthcare entities, for example: hospitals, pharmacies, healthplans, dental practices, and private physician practices.

HIPAA requires covered entities to take steps to limit the use and disclosure of PHI, which means that healthcare entities will be required to develop new policies and procedures that address protecting the privacy and security of patients' rights.  The Office of Civil Rights is the oversight agency responsible for HIPAA compliance.

The deadline for compliance with the privacy standards is April 14, 2003 (small health plans have until April 14, 2004).  To ensure compliance, healthcare entities will be required to document (forms) information captured as patients exercise their privacy rights.
