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 procedures that must be followed in order to ensure the privacy of protected health information (PHI). Maintaining HIPAA compliance is critical to avoid major government fines, reduce risk and protect patient privacy.
HCCS has designed the HIPAA Compliance online training course to incorporate Gamification, all new video scenarios, and the ability to demonstrate competency to reduce seat time. Learners move through the course by demonstrating their knowledge of HIPAA. Real-life video scenarios enhance the understanding of the information presented and increase retention. Interactive exercises include selecting potential risks in a healthcare facility setting, performing an interview and risk assessment after viewing security camera footage, building a PHI wall, and more.
No matter what role a person plays in your healthcare organization, this course will help them to receive proper HIPAA compliance training in order to avoid potentially costly mistakes that could put the privacy of patient information in jeopardy. The course is kept updated as HIPAA rules and regulations change.
