This series provides information on the core elements of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements. The three courses that comprise the HIPAA series focus on healthcare roles and types of activities since HIPAA’s requirements are largely conditioned by the purposes behind the collection, use, or disclosure of health information. Courses include:
- HIPAA Basics for Healthcare Professionals
- HIPAA for Education and Research
- HIPAA for Marketing and Fundraising Professionals
Augmented penalties, audits, and required breach notifications under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act's amendments to HIPAA have raised the stakes for healthcare organizations' compliance. The HIPAA courses are designed to help ensure HIPAA compliance, quality assurance, and risk reduction. The courses cover the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Omnibus Rule, and HITECH Act.
These courses are suitable for anyone who works with individually identifiable health data (HIPAA-defined "PHI") or has responsibilities for setting policies and procedures with respect to these types of data.
