Course Content Example 1:
What is HIPAA?
 
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996
  • Created over 20 years ago, HIPAA had two objectives:
    • To provide health insurance coverage for individuals leaving or changing jobs
    • To save money and increase efficiency of the health care system by creating standards for electronic transactions, such as computerized physician order entry, electronic health records, electronic access to claims information and payment
  • These objectives caused concerns regarding the privacy and security of individual health information, so HIPAA legislation helped create rules to address this
  • Modifications have been made to HIPAA over the last 20+ years as a result of the HITECH Act of 2009 and the Omnibus Fine Rule of 2013. These changes included:
    • Strengthening existing HIPAA requirements for Privacy and Security
    • Expanded individual’s rights relating to their Protected Health Information (PHI)
    • Increased enforcement of HIPAA, including higher fines for non-compliance
    • Addressed notification of breaches of PHI
 
Course Content Example 2:
HIPAA Implications for HCIRs
 
It is important to determine if an HCIR’s job duties requires access to PHI and if so, privacy and security measures should be taken.
 
Some ways to ensure proper handling of PHI include:
  • Don’t be negligent with any type of patient information whether written, oral, or electronic
  • Make sure to properly dispose of or shred any documents that contain PHI
