This tutorial is the sixth of 24 lessons. Designating a privacy official is an administrative requirement of the privacy rule. This position may be delegated to the practitioner's office manager. However, if the office manager is incapable of administering HIPAA compliance, then the practitioner becomes the "privacy official" by default. This website is specifically designed for small entities in California. Each tutorial is narrated by Carol Mack, RN, attorney at law.
