FREE RESOURCES Health Information Security Framework (HISF) Tools

We know how overwhelming it can be to review and comply with the HISO 10029:2015 standard Health Information Security Framework (HISF) requirements. To help New Zealand healthcare organisations, we have created free tools to assist in the journey of aligning with HISF.

Health Information Security Framework (HISF) Tools

HISF Template

Any health organisation must have a health information security policy to assure patients their information is being treated and protected appropriately. HISF supports organisations preparation and maintenance of such a policy. HISF provides advice about procedures and technical standards that need to be incorporated in a policy and sets out minimum requirements and desired goals at various levels of organisation operational complexity and risk.

To help New Zealand healthcare organisations review the HISO 10029:2015 standard Health Information Security Framework (HISF) requirements we are using a template to filter the compliance level or responsibility. This can reduce the time to review the original HISF documentation and measure alignment with a simple checklist before undergoing a full compliance and audit exercise.

Download the template and if you find it useful or have any feedback, please let us know. Note: Our template is a generic guide and should be adapted to your organisation by consulting with internal stakeholders and external auditors like Medical IT Advisors.

Complete our online quick HISF self-check survey. This survey is simple self-check on your organisation readiness to comply with HISF requirements, not a replacement for a full audit, just an initial awareness exercise providing an estimate of your organisation’s risk exposure and alignment to HISF.

Note: The quick HISF self-check is just that and provided as it is with no other claims.
