HIPAA compliance for an organization or Individual revolves around protecting the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI) that the organization has or will have access to. PHI is any information that can be connected to an individual’s health condition.

Organizations or Individuals looking to comply with the HIPAA regulations first have to determine which regulations they have to comply with. There are two distinct and separate regulations under HIPAA:

HIPAA Privacy

safeguards for keeping protected health information safe from a people, administrative, and contractual standpoint

HIPAA Security

safeguards for keeping protected health information specifically in electronic form (computers, networks, email, software, electronic transmissions, etc) safe from disasters, hackers, and electronic theft.

All organizations are required to comply with the HIPAA Privacy regulations, since Privacy involves safeguards from a people standpoint, but only those who store or transmit protected health information electronically are required to comply with the HIPAA Security regulations which is meant to protect electronic data.

 

What is involved in becoming HIPAA compliant?

There are 3 parts to HIPAA compliance for an organization:

  • 1. Providing a HIPAA Awareness Training to all employees of the organization that have access to PHI
  • 2. Implementing formal documents and controls for the organization to protect and safeguard PHI
  • 3. Training of a compliance officer (someone in the organization that is going to take responsibility for HIPAA at your organization)

Part 1 is handled through our organizational training which allows you to roll out training to your employees as a self paced online training that they can each take at their own schedule. Our system trains, tests, and generates a 2 year certificate for compliance record keeping.

Parts 2 and 3 are handled by our in-house team of compliance experts. additionally we  have specialized training for  your designated compliance officer to bring them up to speed and qualify them to implement the required documents, practices and procedures custom developed for your Practice.  We are also training them through a “hands on learn by doing” approach. The theory behind our method is if your compliance officer helps to build it, they will be able to maintain it going forward.

HIPAA Training for Employees

HIPAA requires that all employees be properly trained on HIPAA so that they can be aware of their personally responsibilities under HIPAA as well as help the organization protect the privacy and security of patient health information.

Our Organizational Training is for an organization looking to train its employees on the HIPAA Privacy and HIPAA Security regulations in order to satisfy the training requirement under HIPAA and to provide as proof of proper training.

All employees will take the Awareness training to satisfy the training requirement and then those employees who will be involved in implementing HIPAA Security (the IT part of HIPAA) compliance at your organization (compliance officer and IT staff), will take the additional HIPAA Security course. Our HIPAA Awareness training contains an overview of HIPAA Security for the average person where as the HIPAA Security course is a dedicated course on HIPAA Security and contains an extra level of regulatory detail for someone who has to be responsible for HIPAA Security.

These online training courses are valid for all US states and territories and meet or exceed the requirements for HIPAA training established by the federal HIPAA Privacy and HIPAA Security regulations.
