Privacy and Security Compliance Toolkit

The EHNAC Privacy and Security Toolkit includes a comprehensive set of policies, procedures, forms, best practices and compliance tools and is available for Business Associates and Group Health Plans. Regulatory topics include, but are not limited to, HIPAA/HITECH privacy, security, breach and enforcement. In addition, the EHNAC Privacy and Security Toolkit includes two hours of senior-level, individualized consulting assistance.

The toolkit is available in two versions. One designed for organizations subject to HIPAA/HITECH as a Business Associate and the second specifically customized for employers who sponsor Group Health Plans (coming soon, please call for availability). Business Associates have always been responsible for adherence to the HIPAA Security requirements, but the extent to which Privacy rules apply has been an open question. However, in mid 2019, the Office for Civil Rights clarified the applicable liability for Business Associates as it relates to Privacy requirements. These templates, Risk Assessment materials, draft privacy and security policies and procedures, and other compliance related tools have been updated to reflect the privacy component and aid in HIPAA/HITECH/Cybersecurity compliance specific to the needs of the Business Associate. The Group Health plans (GHP) version provides templates, draft policies and procedures, and other compliance-related resource materials to aid in the specific compliance needs of GHP organizations. The sample Gap Analysis and Risk Assessment materials, policies and procedures include language and sample scenarios that are also customized to the unique business model experienced by the HIPAA GHP type of covered entity.
