HIPAA Safety & Security Training is the perfect course for new hires and the general workforce. This course covers everything healthcare workers need to know about Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act Privacy and Security. This course covers basic, essential HIPAA knowledge and excludes unnecessary information about Transactions, Code Sets, and Insurance Portability, as most workers do not need to know about these topics. This course delivers practical, useful knowledge about the basics of HIPAA in a brief and engaging format employees can connect with.

HIPAA Compliance Training Objectives:
  • What are the HIPAA Privacy, Security and the HITECH laws are about?
  • Who has to follow the these laws?
  • How does it affect you and your job?
  • Why is it important?
  • Where can you get answers to your questions about HIPAA/HITECH?

HIPAA training is mandatory for all employees, including healthcare and non-heathcare employees. It is mandatory for anyone who comes into contact with protected health information (PHI). This includes

  • Clinicians / Physicians
  • Dental Healthcare Professionals
  • Nurses
  • Therapists
  • Receptionists & Support Staff
  • Health IT and EMR Vendors
  • Medical Transcription Service Organizations
  • Health Care Consultants
  • Documentation Technology & Services Professionals
  • Anyone who provides treatment, payment and operations in healthcare
  • Health plans, Insurance Companies, HMOs
  • Employees/interns of Contractors & Vendors

HIPAA requires that both covered entities and business associates provide HIPAA training to members of their workforce who handle PHI. Employees in certain positions such as HIM, information technology network administration, or regulatory compliance staff members, may need more specialized training.

Our Individual Training is for a single individual looking to obtain their HIPAA Awareness training certification (and optionally their HIPAA Security training certification) to satisfy the training requirement under HIPAA and to provide to an employer/organization as proof of training before they can allow you access to their patients’ health information.

If you are an organization looking to train your employees, please contact us for group rate. All organizations are required to comply with the HIPAA Privacy regulations, since Privacy involves safeguards from a people standpoint, but only those who store or transmit protected health information electronically are required to comply with the HIPAA Security regulations which is meant to protect electronic data. Once you know which regulations you need to comply with, then it is just a matter of knowing what you need to do to comply.

The HIPAA Privacy Rule states that training must be provided to “each new member of the workforce within a reasonable period of time after the person joins the covered entity’s workforce” and to “each member of the covered entity’s workforce whose functions are affected by a material change in the policies or procedures . . . within a reasonable period of time after the material change becomes effective.” Basically, the Privacy Rule requires training upon hiring or whenever there is a material change in policies and procedures.

The HIPAA Security Rule requires a security awareness and training program for all workforce members with an implementation specification that the program include periodic security updates. The Security Rule doesn’t define what “periodic” means or when and how often people must be trained. Nor does it define what the periodic security updates must consist of.
