Being in compliance with HIPAA involves not only ensuring you provide the appropriate patient rights and controls on your uses and disclosures of protected health information, but you also have the proper policies and procedures in place. A HIPAA Risk Management plan is your overall policies and procedures manual. If audited or the subject of a compliance review you will be required to show the government you have all the necessary policy and procedure documentation in place to address all the required safeguards.
