Notificación de Prácticas de Privacidad. (Notice of Privacy Practices en Español.)
The HIPAA Privacy Rule requires health plans and covered health care providers to develop and distribute a notice--the Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP)--that provides a clear, user-friendly explanation of individuals’ rights with respect to their personal health information and the privacy practices of health plans and health care providers. Access free privacy notice tools here.
Steri•Safe HIPAA Compliance Program Members rely on Stericycle for access to resources. Many providers seek templates to provide the Notice of Privacy Practices in English and Spanish to improve patient experience and understanding.
Stericycle is spreading the word about customizable, printable model NPPs developed by The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC).
