The HIPAA law gives consumers peace of mind in knowing that their health care provider and their insurer will protect their personal and medical information. Users who handle protected health information (PHI) should be certified that they have acquired knowledge in HIPAA rules and understand the consequences of violations of complying with HIPAA rules. The HIPAA certification process underscores the responsibility of every person who handles PHI to ensure the data is kept both secure and private.
Aids in understanding the distinctions of the HIPAA standards and how they apply to safeguarding PHI.
HIPAA certification will ensure patients that their health care provider and workforce understand their responsibility to protect their PHI.
HIPAA certification will let others know that health care workers have a clear understanding of how HIPAA rules apply and that they will implement them when necessary.
HIPAA certification lets employers know that workforce members understand the HIPAA rules and will work to ensure compliance with them at all times.
Employers and their workforce must be relentlessly compliant with HIPAA rules. Violating the rules of HIPAA comes with major consequences and companies can be fined up to $1.5 million a year for violations. It is hard to be compliant with HIPAA rules if you don’t know what is required. HIPAA certification is a must for every health care company and every member of their workforce.
What is the HIPAA Privacy Rule?
Establishes a foundation of Federal protections for the privacy of protected health information (PHI). This Rule does not replace Federal, State, or other law that grants individuals greater privacy protections. An individual has a right to Be informed of the privacy practices of their health plans and of most of their health care providers. Be informed of their privacy rights with respect to their personal health information. Receive notice of privacy practices from the CE.
What are Incidental uses and disclosures of PHI? Because there exist communications and practices, as well as different environments where individuals receive health care or other services from CEs, a potential exists for an individual’s PHI to be disclosed incidentally. Example: Hospital visitor may overhear a provider’s confidential conversation with another provider or a patient; or a visitor may see a patient’s information on a sign in sheet or nursing station whiteboard. HIPAA Privacy Rule is not intended to impede customary and essential communications and practices. The Privacy Rule permits certain incidental uses and disclosures of PHI to occur when the CE has in place reasonable safeguards such as: Speak quietly when discussing a patient’s condition with family members in a waiting area or other public area; Avoid using patients’ names in public hallways and elevators, and post signs to remind employees to protect patient confidentiality; Isolate or lock file cabinets or records room; Provide additional security, such as passwords, on computers with PHI.
