HIPAA Security And Privacy Training

HIPAA Security And Privacy Training

Your Organization Is Only As Secure As Its Weakest Link

Get comprehensive HIPAA privacy and security training to protect patient data and avoid employee actions that might lead to a data breach. We offer customized HIPAA training for covered entities, business associates, covered entities, and non-medical employers.

HIPAA Training Options

The information that a health care provider collects and uses to provide patient care is confidential and often sensitive. Because of the sensitive nature of medical records, patients must trust their health care provider to safeguard their information and use it appropriately. Employees of organizations that are considered 'covered entities' under HIPAA who work with patients and their confidential information on a daily basis are required to follow the HIPAA Privacy Rule.

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Identify protected health information
  • Appropriately use and disclose ePHI
  • Implement best practices for safeguarding the information you work with every day

This course provides employees of business associates (as defined by HIPAA) with an overview of the security obligations that apply to their organizations to protect electronically stored and transmitted PHI. Discover the importance of compliance, the different kinds of safeguards that business associates are required to put in place, and the role of individual employees in preventing data breaches.

Employees are trained on:

  • Best practices to reduce risks to ePHI
  • How to achieve better security when emailing, browsing the web, or remotely accessing ePHI

This course provides employees of covered entitles with an overview of the security obligations regarding their use of electronic protected health information (ePHI). It also explains the different kinds of safeguards that covered entities are required to put in place and explores best practices for preventing loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of ePHI. 

Many organizations have non-medical employees that can still access personal or private health information for their work roles. These organizations are legally obligated to protect this information as described by HIPAA's Privacy Rule. This course helps these employees learn how to identify protected health information (PHI), how to appropriately use, disclose, or request PHI, and the importance of following their employer's internal privacy policies/procedures for handling the PHI. 

This course gives an overview of HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) by outlining main points and identifying who is covered by HIPAA. This course examines the privacy provisions under HIPAA that protect health information (PHI). Help your employees and business associates of covered entities recognize the key provisions of HIPAA, how their organizations are affected by HIPAA, and how the privacy rules impact them.

HR practitioners need to understand laws and regulatory standards that impact their organization and employees. Organizational noncompliance may lead to financial penalties and other indirect costs.

In this course, you'll learn about a number of federal laws and standards and their amendments, covering areas of compensation, employment, health and safety, employee relations, and employee protection.
