Secure your company's compliance with the HHS investigation and recordkeeping requirements with our HIPAA Investigations Policy Template. This pre-made, professionally designed policy provides guidance and structure to Covered Entities (CEs) and Business Associates (BAs) regarding their responsibilities during investigations conducted by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR). The policy outlines the process for responding to OCR requests for investigation records, ensuring that both parties are properly informed from the start. It also covers conducting internal investigations related to security incidents or other potential privacy violations.

The template is developed in line with federal regulations and addresses all CEs and BAs covered under HIPAA. It includes step-by-step instructions on how to prepare a response plan in anticipation of future requests as well as specific processes that need to be followed when responding to an investigation request. Additionally, it stipulates best practices needed during an internal privacy breach investigation, such as reporting policies, disciplinary measures, on-going monitoring activities and cooperation procedures with outside entities.
