Do I Need a HIPAA Attestation Template?
HIPAA’s rules and regulations mandate that employees receive annual training on policies and procedures regarding the use of patient PHI. This obviously means that an organization must first have these policies and procedures in place.
Many HIPAA violations result from companies having outdated or ineffective policies in place. These violations have resulted in substantial fines for the organizations cited. One of the benefits that Compliancy Group provides for its clients is a full slate of HIPAA tested policies and procedures that are customizable to your organization and how you do business.
In addition to requiring annual training, HIPAA also requires a record of training to be maintained. As far as the regulators are concerned, if you can’t prove that the training was done, it never happened.
All Compliancy Group clients also have access to a suite of employee training materials that satisfies the annual requirements mandated by HIPAA. The training can be assigned to employees, and attestations recorded and tracked within “The Guard,” the compliance automation software solution offered by Compliancy Group.
