HIPAA Training for Employees of Healthcare Providers
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) has been around since the 1990’s. Most people know what it is, or at least know that it deals with the privacy and security of health information. However, there is much to know about the intricacies and requirements of HIPAA and how it effects how we operate as workers in a health care facility.
Watch this webinar recording as Rebecca Coffin, partner at Voigt, Rode, Boxeth, and Coffin, and Marleah Keuler, Risk Manager with M3 Insurance’s Senior Living and Social Services practice group, help you navigate HIPAA requirements for privacy, security, and a health care provider’s responsibilities.
The first 18 minutes of the training are geared toward all facility employees and covers the HIPAA basics:
- What is HIPAA, who it pertains to, and what is its purpose
- What is protected health information
- Expectations of frontline staff
- Examples of potential HIPAA breaches
While all employees are welcomed to view the training in its entirety, the remainder of the training focuses on broader organizational responsibilities surrounding HIPAA compliance, including:
- Safeguarding records and additional privacy practices
- Contents of a medical record
- Handling record requests/record release
- Identifying, assessing, and responding to potential HIPAA breaches
