To start off the New Year, here are some potential health information privacy and security resolutions. You can use these Annual, Quarterly, and Monthly lists to map out your privacy and security tasks for the year, and then check them off as you complete them. We have included empty rows for you to add your own resolutions.

As with any New Year’s resolutions, these are intended to represent potential best practices for the coming year – failing to meet one or more of these resolutions does not necessarily mean that you are out of compliance with HIPAA or other laws.

Additionally, this list is not intended to be comprehensive of all statutory and regulatory requirements. Checking off all these resolutions does not guarantee compliance. While this list is focused on health information privacy and security, we hope that other sectors will also find it useful.
