Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), employees of covered entities who have access to protected health information (PHI) have important obligations that can safeguard their organizations against legal, financial and reputational risks. And HIPAA training isn’t just a way to deliver information about these requirements; it’s part of the requirements themselves.

For organizations considered covered entities under HIPAA, safeguarding protected health information (PHI) is everyone’s responsibility. This course addresses that responsibility as outlined by the training requirements found in HIPAA’s Privacy and Security Rules. It provides a solid foundation in critical HIPAA regulations and requirements, along with practical tips and best practices for the protection of PHI, as well as important information on the notification and reporting processes for suspected HIPAA violations. 

For covered entities, safeguarding PHI is everyone’s responsibility. Effective training decreases the chances of accidental data breaches and increases the likelihood that employees will recognize PHI, understand the value of protecting it, and take the steps to do so.
