Violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) can result in a number of serious legal risk, and they jeopardize reputations and business relationships. To protect against these types of damages, effective, up-to-date HIPAA training is critical.

Designed for organizations considered business associates under HIPAA, this course helps those organizations meet the training requirements found in HIPAA’s Privacy and Security Rules. It does this by offering an engaging, informative look at learners’ obligations under the law to properly safeguard and control the use and disclosure of protected health information (PHI). It includes tips and best practices for fulfilling those responsibilities, as well as important insights on the notification and reporting processes and procedures to follow if a HIPAA violation is suspected.

The end result is a HIPAA course that can help business associates and their employees recognize PHI, understand the value of protecting it and implement strong, HIPPA-compliant and effective measures for doing so.
