Why Provide HIPAA Compliance Training?

Because HIPAA and its various rules are so complex, the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Civil Rights (OCR) requires employers covered by the law to provide training to their employees. In addition to being mandated by OCR, effective training on HIPAA rules can also protect companies from costly HIPAA violations.

In the past several years, numerous companies have been required to pay millions of dollars in fines for HIPAA violations. Thousands more have been subjected to expensive and time-consuming corrective action plans due to inadvertent or careless infractions. 

Many employers find themselves covered by HIPAA even if they are not in a traditional healthcare setting. Regardless of the type of business, employees need HIPAA training in order to ensure compliance with the law.

Who Should Take HIPAA Compliance Training

Training on the HIPAA Privacy Rule and the HIPAA Security rule should be provided to all executives, managers, employees, providers, administrative personnel, and anyone else who might become involved in handling protected health information on behalf of a covered entity.

Organizations should train not only their employees but also any agents or third parties that might knowingly or unknowingly violate HIPAA requirements in the course of their work.

HIPAA Compliance Course Content

Using a variety of interactive scenarios and learning exercises, Clear Law’s online HIPAA Privacy and Security Training explores the nuances of the following topics:

HIPAA Essentials

  • Who must follow HIPAA?
  • What kinds of information does the law protect?
  • What is protected health information (PHI)?
  • What are individuals’ rights under HIPAA?
  • How does HIPAA interact with state law?

The Privacy Rule: Use and Disclosure of PHI

  • Legitimate business need
  • Authorized access
  • Disclosing information to others
  • Written authorization for disclosure
  • Payment, treatment, and healthcare operation activities
  • Minimum necessary standard
  • Documentation of disclosure
  • Incidental use and disclosure

The Security Rule: What Employees Need to Know

  • Security threats
  • Administrative and technical safeguards
  • Physical safeguards

Reporting and Retaliation

  • Breach notification rules
  • Consequences of a breach, to the organization and the individual
  • How to report (tailored to your organization)
  • Preventing retaliation

Policy Review

  • Learners view your organization’s particular policy on HIPAA compliance
  • Learners are encouraged to access and review your policy throughout the course

Customization and Languages

Instead of providing generic training, employers can customize this training by including:

  • Your logo
  • An introductory audio or video message from your CEO or other senior leader welcoming users to the course
  • Company-specific policies on HIPAA, which employees will have to acknowledge having read

Clear Law can also modify the training to include scenarios that directly relate to the actual issues your employees may face.  Using “green screen” type technology, Clear Law is able to quickly and inexpensively change actors and backgrounds to create employer-specific scenarios that look like they’re taking place in your actual workplace.

Clear Law can also translate the course into any additional languages needed.

Accessible to Users with Disabilities

When providing online compliance training, many employers violate the Americans with Disabilties Act because their training is not fully accessible to users with disabilities. The EEOC has sued several employers in recent years, in part for not providing accessible training. This year, the U.S. Department of Justice issued “Web Accessibility Guidance Under the Americans with Disabilities Act” and noted its renewed focus on suing companies for violationg this guidance.

Clear Law Institute complies with not only Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act but also the much stricter requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard.
