Description:

As the healthcare industry rapidly migrates to a paperless future in which individual health information is recorded, maintained, and transmitted electronically, the need to secure that information grows. Because unauthorized access to private health information could have dangerous ramifications for individuals, healthcare professionals, and many businesses, Congress enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in 1996 with the goal of protecting such information.

One of HIPAA’s main provisions, the Security Rule, outlines the standards for protecting electronic health information that health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and many healthcare providers are required to follow. As of 2006, all entities that fall under the law’s purview must be in compliance with these standards and their accompanying implementation specifications. Given the harsh penalties for non-compliance, covered entities must take great care to learn the law’s requirements and adhere to them.

This course outlines in detail the various provisions of the HIPAA Security Rule to facilitate the complicated but necessary process of compliance with this far-reaching federal law.

TARGET AUDIENCE
Managers, Supervisors, and Employees of businesses that handle electronic protected health information.

TIME TO COMPLETE

PURPOSE
To instruct employees who handle electronic protected health information in following the policies and implementing the practices required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996.
