Privacy & Security Officials Workgroup

This is NCHICA’s oldest workgroup, originally established in 1996 as the Security & Confidentiality Taskforce. It’s first task was to examine NC laws on information management and how to adapt these laws to electronic medical records.


Meeting Schedule

The workgroup meets monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. Meetings are held from 9:30am – 1:00pm in person and by teleconference. Participation in meetings are for NCHICA members only, and registration is required. Click here to view upcoming meetings.


Over the years, workgroup members developed some of NCHICA’s most popular tools and documents on HIPAA compliance, establishing NCHICA’s reputation as a trusted resource for consensus-base compliance solutions. These documents include:

  • Model Business Associate Agreement
  • Model Notice of Privacy Practices
  • HITECH Act Breach Risk Assessment Tool
  • Vendor Management Policy Template

A full list of documents developed by the workgroup can be found on page 24-25 of NCHICA’s 20th Anniversary Book.

NCHICA, through its collaborative efforts, provides Privacy and Security Officials with an effective venue to review healthcare regulations and openly discuss potential implementation strategies. These strategies have resulted in a framework that participating organizations can use to understand and comply with federal and state regulations..
