Fundamentals of HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules for the Medical Office Staff Covers day to day operations of a medical practice.
Medical Office Staff
This course is designed to provide a comprehensive look at HIPAA legislation as it applies to medical office staff, including administrative and front desk employees. For those who have not had previous HIPAA training or who want a complete overview of HIPAA, this course discusses the Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule, and Enforcement Rule in detail. The more recent updates to HIPAA as a result of the HITECH Act and Final Omnibus Rule are also highlighted. Emphasis is placed on elements of HIPAA that are most applicable to the functioning of a medical office. This includes such things as proper sign-in procedures and telephone policies, how to properly fax and of Protected Health Information (PHI), and what should be included in a Notice of Privacy Practices and Authorization to Release PHI. With potential HHS audits in the future and increased fines for non-compliance, completion of this course will provide medical office staff with the knowledge they need to maintain the privacy and security of PHI.
