The federal government has established a series of rules designed to protect the rights of patients and ensure that their personal information stays private. Enforced by the Office of Civil Rights, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) establishes a series of procedures that must be followed in order to ensure patient privacy. In order to avoid major government fines, itís critical for healthcare providers to maintain HIPAA compliance.
HIPAA privacy training should be a critical part of your organizationís ongoing staff training.
