HCCS Releases New HIPAA for Health Plans Online Training Course

April 07, 2016

Jericho, NY – HCCS, a HealthStream Company, today announced the release of a new fully redesigned HIPAA for Health Plans online training course that includes new video scenarios, new interactive exercises to enhance the training experience, and “demonstrated competency.”  Demonstrated competency is a new feature only available from HCCS that allows learners to reduce their training seat time by demonstrating knowledge on a specific topic. 

In the HCCS HIPAA for Health Plans online training course, health plans train their staff members on critical compliance procedures to protect patients and reduce risk.  “Every individual in a healthcare organization, no matter the role, needs to receive proper training in order to follow HIPAA regulations for the privacy and security of member information,” says Ben Diamond, Vice President, Compliance Solutions, HCCS.  “Failure to do so can put member privacy in jeopardy and lead to large fines and penalties for the organization.” 

The HIPAA for Health Plans online training course has been redesigned to allow learners to demonstrate competency on specific HIPAA rules.  If the learner successfully proves they are knowledgeable on a specific HIPAA topic, they can reduce their seat time by skipping portions of the training associated with that topic.  

In addition to demonstrated competency, the course features brand new compliance video scenarios with professional actors and interactive exercises to keep learners engaged and to increase retention of the information presented.  The course is role-based, allowing each facility to deliver content specific to a staff member’s position in the facility.

The HCCS HIPAA for Health Plans online training course covers topics such as:

  • HIPAA Awareness
  • Privacy
  • Electronic Security
  • Electronic Transactions
  • Enforcement Rule
  • Stimulus Act and HIPAA

HCCS online training courses provide healthcare organizations with an engaging and interactive learning experience to change staff behavior.  HCCS courses enhance job performance and promote compliance with ethical, legal and accreditation guidelines.  Through a unique multimedia experience, HCCS courseware explains compliance rules and reduces risk.
