NASW HIPAA Security Rule Online Compliance Workbook

Click here for a FREE download of the HIPAA Security Rule Primer

The HIPAA Security Rule Online Compliance Workbook is a comprehensive, easy-to-use online resource to help social workers comply with the HIPAA Security Rule. The workbook provides direct access to the resources needed for Security Rule compliance including:

  • Step-by-step risk analysis for all aspects of your practice - Practitioners respond to a series of questions to assess their practice’s potential security risks and vulnerabilities related to electronic patient health information.
  • Compliance options for each Security Rule requirement- Practitioners identify security measures they will take to comply with the Security Rule. Each compliance option has corresponding policies and procedures that practitioners can either use as is, or edit and customize to better fit their practice.
  • Documentation, including policies and procedures, that practitioners can customize to fit their practice. When the documents are complete, practitioners can print a final policies and procedures document for their own reference, for distribution to their workforce and/or to show regulators in the event of an audit.
  • Links to compliance resources, including technical resources, that provide guidance for securing computers and other devices.

NASW members can purchase the online Workbook for $145. Practitioners who do not belong to NASW are charged the full retail price of $159.
