Created almost 20 years ago, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) continues to play a significant role in the everyday practice of health care professionals and their business associates. Maintaining the privacy and security of patient information is more challenging than ever with the increased use of portable electronic devices, such as laptops and mobile phones. Modifications have been made to HIPAA over the last few years as a result of the HITECH Act of 2009 and the Omnibus Final Rule of 2013. These changes: Strengthened existing HIPAA requirements for Privacy and Security. Expanded individual's rights relating their Protected Health Information (PHI). Increased enforcement of HIPAA, including higher fines for non-compliance. Addressed notification for breaches of PHI.
This course is designed for Business Associates who have had previous HIPAA training, but could use a review of the key elements while highlighting the most recent updates. Recent changes to HIPAA since the HITECH Act and the Final Omnibus Rule have made Business Associates directly liable for HIPAA violations. This course will address what is most important for a Business Associate to know, such as such as the expanded definition of what constitutes a Business Associate and what should be included in Business Associate Agreements. With potential HHS audits in the future and increased fines for non-compliance, completion of this course will provide Business Associates with the knowledge they need to maintain the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI).
