Understanding HIPAA Compliance

 HIPAA Requirements 519863294.jpg


It's vital to ensure your business meets HIPAA compliance. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been actively inspecting businesses, otherwise referred to as Covered Entities, to certify compliance with this privacy rule.   

Complying with HIPAA continues to generate many questions and need for clarifications.  The HIPAA rule established by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) back in 1996 has evolved over time.  This evolution has created a need for continuous education on HIPAA’s requirements.  

HHS requires under the HIPAA Act that covered entities protect patient health information. A requirement of HIPAA is to inform workplace members of the established privacy and security measures in effect.  Get the help you need in clarifying the basics of HIPAA requirements and training your workforce members by taking this HIPAA training online course:  HIPAA – Employee Need to Know.

The safeguards established to protect patient health information under the HIPAA Act includes the appointment of individuals who will establish, monitor, and update the privacy and security policies and procedures. It’s critical for the privacy official and security official to understand their responsibilities for the protection of this information. These individuals are the key to the establishment of a Covered Entity’s policies and procedures. Get the help you need in grasping the official’s responsibilities and in understanding the types of documentation needed to meet the privacy rule requirements by taking this HIPAA online training course: HIPAA Privacy Official and Security Official Responsibilities.
