HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) says that every healthcare organization must appoint a privacy officer. The privacy official may have other responsibilities in addition to his/her privacy official position in a typical practice or organizational setting. The privacy official need to check all ongoing activities related to the development, implementation and maintenance of the organization’s privacy policies in accordance with applicable federal and state laws.
