Purpose of Course:

As a health care worker, maintaining the privacy and security of patient information is crucial. A solid understanding of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability of 1996 (HIPAA) is necessary to achieve this.

However, HIPAA legislation is complex and robust. It has had many changes and additions since its creation in 1996. Most recently, the HITECH Act of 2009 and the Final Ominibus Rule of 2013 have:

Strengthened existing HIPAA requirements for Privacy and Security
Expanded individuals' rights relating to their Protected Health Information (PHI)
Increased enforcement of HIPAA, including higher fines for non-compliance
Addressed notifications for breaches of PHI

This course provides a comprehensive and in-depth look at HIPAA legislation as it pertains to a health care worker, so that Protected Health Information is properly used and disclosed.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this module, the learner should:

  • Understand the purpose of HIPAA legislation
  • Explain the changes implemented to HIPAA by the Omnibus Final Rule
  • Identify the key elements of the Privacy Rule, Security Rule, and Enforcement Rule
  • Explain the process for Breach Notification
  • Understand the Unique Identifiers and Transaction and Code Set Rules
  • Be aware of how to apply these rules to his/her daily practice as a health care worker
