The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society and Medical Group Management Association have developed a privacy and security toolkit for small provider organizations.

The kit covers privacy and security requirements in the meaningful use, HITECH and HIPAA rules; outlines issues for senior executive consideration; and offers 30 resource/guidance documents covering risk analysis, auditing, health information exchange, disposal of protected information, patient consent, authentication and password management, and de-identification, among other issues.

Users also can submit their own tools for consideration to be included in the toolkit, available here.
