Since its introduction in 1996, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has had far-reaching implications for medical professionals as well as lawyers, IT technicians, HR professionals and others who work with the healthcare industry.
Key features of HIPAA include a set of strict privacy and confidentiality standards for handling patient records and other sensitive information. HIPAA also requires that all relevant staff receive ongoing training on the scope and contents of the Act, and its implications for how they do their jobs.
Because this requirement is quite broad, there is no common certification for HIPAA training programs. That’s why it’s important to work with a continuing education provider that takes care to offer programing based on the latest legal, cultural and technological changes affecting the way healthcare is delivered.
