FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is HIPAA Certification?
There is no such thing as HIPAA certification for an organization or provider. There are guidelines for protected healthcare information (phi), and there are certifications that may include some or all of the guidelines as set forth in HIPAA as required by HHS and enforced by OCR. HIPAA Exams offers a complete training course and certification that allows your organization to stay in compliance with HIPAA mandated guidelines including HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA HITECH and HIPAA Omnibus rule which is required to comply with federal regulations.
What is HIPAA Compliance?
Per HIPAA regulation there are two types of organizations that must meet HIPAA training compliance – Covered Entities including group health plans and Business Associates. In order to meet HIPAA compliance and be HIPAA compliant, both Covered Entities and Business Associates must ensure that their organizations are following the standards and guidelines. Yearly training and risk assessments are only one aspect of compliance. The HIPAA Privacy Rule require Federal standards to protect the medical records and other protected health information of all individuals within the U.S. It applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and all those providers who maintain or have access to electronic health records phi. The HIPAA Security Rule applies the Privacy Rule to include standards to protect individual’s electronic personal health information phi that is created, received, used, or maintained by a covered entity or business associate and sets reporting for breach notifications enforced by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR).

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.
