FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is HIPAA Certification?


HIPAA certification, or training, is required for all those who work within the healthcare field and have access to could be exposed to Personal Health Information (PHI). There is no actual HIPAA Certification and HHS does not endorse any certification. The purpose of HIPAA certification is to ensure that individuals within the healthcare industry are aware of HIPAA regulations, including their role in protecting and securing PHI. HIPAA certification should not be confused with HIPAA Compliance. HIPAA certification is a part of maintaining HIPAA Compliance, but is aimed at ensuring individuals are aware of the law and their responsibilities. HIPAA Compliance is the process of ensuring an entire organization is following and adhering to HIPAA regulation.

What is HIPAA Training?


HIPAA training is the process of becoming familiar with HIPAA regulations and your role as it relates to the protection of patient health information. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has been around 24 years and has grown and expanded overtime to include the HITECH Act and Omnibus Rule. Most recently, in 2021, HIPAA had two major updates to regulations. Because this is an ever evolving law, HIPAA training is require for all employees upon hire and then frequently thereafter (usually yearly, per industry standards).

What Should a HIPAA Checklist Include?

  • Track and trace all folders and files that contain PHI.
  • Restrict access to PHI across your organization—allow limited access. 
  • Include the HIPAA compliance rules in all policies and procedures.
  • In case of any issues, document your compliance policies and procedures to maintain and record of compliance.
  • Regularly review the data security measures in place at your organization to detect any faulty processes or loopholes.
  • Have a proper remedial plan lined out in case of any gap in compliance. 
  • Ensure that all business associates and covered entities in BAAs are also in compliance with HIPAA. 
  • Prepare with a procedure and documents, just in case of a PHI data breach.
  • Maintain Compliance with HIPAA Training

What Does HIPAA Stand For?

HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1996. The purpose was to improve how healthcare entities protect sensitive patient information. Since this time, new rules were added to HIPAA to enhance the current levels of protection. 

The Importance of Using an IACET Accredited Training Provider

In a nutshell, accreditations are essential to ensuring verified information, legitimacy, and a minimum standard of excellence. Given the IACET's rigorous tests, standards of quality and review process, there is an added layer of competence associated with accreditation. It implies that the training provider in question has undergone and withstood a thorough process of examinations and scrutiny. Unaccredited training providers are notorious for providing inaccurate and false information. And it makes sense, doesn't it? Why would a company that doesn't have to undergo any screening process bother with fact-checking information? This highlights the importance of Using an IACET Accredited Training Provider.

Who Enforces HIPAA?

With all the compliance mandates surrounding HIPAA, and the fines that have taken place over the past year, it’s easy to wonder who’s finding all these violations and who’s enforcing HIPAA. The main party enforcing HIPAA is the Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights, also known as OCR.


While they have most of the jurisdiction, the State Attorney General, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) all have some say in HIPAA enforcement.
