Model Notices of Privacy Practices Released

Model Notices of Privacy Practices were recently released by the Department of Health and Human Services.  The models give an example of the notices that health care providers are required to provide to patients and post on their websites.  These model notices should generally be tailored to your health care practice.  Additionally, practices should obtain signatures from patients acknowledging receipt of the notices.

The sample notices can be found here: http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/modelnotices.html
