Training

Our training products help you get your staff up to speed quickly and effectively. There is simply nothing more mission-critical than getting you and your staff adequately trained with respect to the HIPAA/HITECH regulatory requirements. In 2018 we introduced training Content Shorts that consist of training modules based on various content topics lasting about 15 minutes. We have also introduced Micro Shorts that are training for specific topics that can be covered in about 5 minutes. Each of these new Shorts are contained in the Privacy Rule Training Pro Package and will be coming for the Security Rule as well as Breach Notification.

Therefore, relying on the "HIPAA feel good" training Covered Entities historically engaged in no longer suffices. All relevant stakeholders including, but not limited to, clinicians, administrative staff, health information technologists and compliance professionals need to understand, and become well grounded in, HIPAA regulatory fundamentals.

The following training modules are available:

Training has always been an important part of the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules.

Privacy Rule section §164.530 (b)(1) (Administrative requirements) states as follows:

Standard: Training. A covered entity must train all members of its workforce on the policies and procedures with respect to protected health information required by this subpart and subpart D (breach notification) of this part, as necessary and appropriate for the members of the workforce to carry out their functions within the covered entity.

The Privacy Rule's training Standard also mandates training for the breach notification rule (subpart D). The HIPAA Security Rule section §164.308(a)(5) (Administrative safeguards) states as follows:

Implement a security awareness and training program for all members of its workforce (including management).

It stands to reason that a covered entity or business associate must train its workforce in order to comply. Our HITECH / HIPAA Core Training Modules allow you to meet this requirement and provides you reusable training materials for new workforce members as they come on-board. Also, you can readily customize our training materials in order to meet specific organizational requirement.
