HIPAA Compliance Training Courses

Need HIPAA Compliance Training?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Essentially, any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that all the required physical, network, and security measures are in place and followed. The best way to do this is through HIPAA training.

About HIPAA Compliance: What Are The HIPAA Guidelines?

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, "The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) required the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to develop regulations protecting the privacy and security of certain health information."

The Privacy Rule established national standards for the protection of certain health information (aka PHI). The Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information established a national set of security standards for protecting certain health information that is held or transferred in electronic form.

Protected Health Information (PHI) is any information that can identify a patient or client of any organization covered by HIPAA. Examples of PHI include name, address, phone number, Social Security number, and medical records. PHI transmitted, stored, or accessed electronically is known as electronic protected health information (aka ePHI). ePHI is regulated by the HIPAA Security Rule.

What Are The Key Elements Of HIPAA Compliance?

The Security Rule requires covered entities to maintain reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards for protecting PHI and ePHI. According to HHS, covered entities must:
  • Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all ePHI they create, receive, maintain, or transmit
  • Identify and protect against reasonably anticipated threats to the security or integrity of the information
  • Protect against reasonably anticipated, impermissible uses or disclosures
  • Ensure compliance by their workforce
