    HIPAA & HITECH Policies, Procedures & Forms for Health Care Professionals. On March 26, 2013 federal regulations related to the practice of mental health professionals changed. The regulations that enforce HIPAA (45 CFR Parts 160, 162 & 164) and HITECH (42 CFR Parts 412, 413, 422 & 495) were enhanced to tighten the responsibilities each of us has related to our clients' protected health information (PHI). Together, HIPAA & HITECH address PHI on paper and PHI stored and transmitted by computers. A focused effort by Attorney Robert "Bob" E. Smith, a member of Advocates Law Group, PLLC, and Marvin W. Eidinger, Jr., PhD, JD, a psychologist and attorney, has resulted in a CD containing a complete set of Policies and Procedures that satifsy the HIPAA and HITECH requirements. Additionally, the CD contains 20+ forms that meet new federal and state requirements. For more information go to the website below. To purchase this CD contact Cascadia Training. (206) 441-6892.
