- What is Texas HB300? Texas House Bill 300 is Texas state legislation that expands the state's patient privacy protection for covered entities. HB300 revises the definition of a Covered Entity (CE) and increases mandates that CEs must abide by. It also establishes standards for use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs), and grants enforcement to state agencies.
- Who must take HB300? Anyone living or working in the state of Texas, who has access to or may encounter either personal health information (PHI) or sensitive personal information (SPI), is required to go through Texas HB300 training.
- How often must HB300 be trained on? All employees who work or do business in the state of Texas, must complete Texas HB300 within 60 days of hire. After initial training, ongoing training needs to be taken every year or at least twice every two years.
- I took HIPAA, why doesn't that cover it? While HIPAA is federal regulation, Texas HB300 is unique to the state of Texas. It is in addition to HIPAA regulation as it takes some of the protections afforded in HIPAA and expands those regulations to other areas. HIPAA training does not cover the specifics for Texas HB300. To be compliant with both federal and state laws, one must take both HIPAA and Texas HB300.
