Understanding HIPAA and Terminations of Employees to Prevent Breaches

Learn the steps and best practices when terminating an employee to avoid data breaches.

HIPAA demands that health care employers implement robust data privacy protocols and systems. Although nearly all health care employers invest significant time and money training employees on these systems and the importance of data privacy and the risk of a data breach, employers oftentimes do not have a comprehensive off-boarding plan in place to protect against unauthorized access by terminated employees. The consequences of failure to control for and manage the access of terminated employees can be wide-ranging, from civil to criminal liability to reputational damage. This topic will help health care employers to understand how to appropriately prepare for employee terminations to limit the risk of a HIPAA data breach. Knowing the risks and taking preventative and proactive actions to protect protected health information will protect the employer, employees and those they serve. This information is critical for employers to avoid civil and criminal penalties as well as to stay off the office for civil rights compliance's wall of shame.
