HIPPA Staff Training
HIPAA – the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a U.S. federal law enacted with the intent to reform the healthcare industry by reducing costs, simplifying administrative processes, and improving the privacy and security of patients' health information. Today HIPAA compliance mainly revolves around the last item: protecting the privacy and security of patient’s health information.
Who Needs to Comply with HIPPA?
Any person or organization who has access to personal health information, or works in or with the healthcare industry, including:
- Healthcare Providers
- Employer Group Health PLans
- Health Insurance Companies
- Healthcare Clearing Houses
- Business Associates (anyone who works with any of the 4 above)
For this reason, we offer a comprehensive HIPAA compliance program based on customizable policies and procedures to meet these regulations.
As part of our compliance program, you will be assigned one of our certified HIPAA- compliance specialists who will be available to answer all of your HIPPS-related questions. Your staff will receive annual training featuring engaging slides, videos and interactive quizzes. Each employee who completes the training will receive a certificate and you will have a record of their training stored online.
We will also perform an Annual Security Risk Assessment, allowing you to evaluate potential risks to your data and the remediation steps needed to avoid them. We will create and store your company’s HIPAA program online – creating customized policies and procedures which will be shared with your employees as a part of meeting the federal guidelines.
