The Unique User I.D. Policy Template begins by outlining the purpose of the policy—to establish guidelines for issuing, maintaining and auditing user ID’s across all PHI systems. The template is then broken down into four simple sections: Authorization & Verification of Users, Issuance of Identifiers, Maintenance & Removal of Identifiers, and Security Requirements throughout Access Administration. In each section you can easily edit and customize your requirements to suit the specific needs of your organization, helping you remain in compliance no matter what changes arise in your system setup or administration practices. 

This policy template helps to define the requirements when issuing Unique User Identifications, as mandated by HIPAA regulations. It covers requirements such as maintaining an inventory of user IDs; assigning unique IDs; monitoring users of Unique ID’s; revoking or disabling unique IDs when appropriate; and instituting measures to prevent unauthorized use of passwords associated with these IDs. The template also includes provisions for storing audit logs detailing all system activities initiated by individual users who have been assigned a Unique ID.
