Hello
the manager is ultimately responsible for fielding the questions any patient might have...or complaints..about the privacy policy, or office uses of the policy.
Also would be responsible to make sure all patients in the practice are receiving and signing a copy of the policy and the fact that they have read it.
And of course that the policy is in place, that privacy is protected among staff and that staff is trained in policy and procedures regarding privacy.
Good luck
