HIPAA laws and compliance Gain an understanding of who is governed by HIPAA and what your requirements are as a covered entity or business associate. HIPAA compliance begins with understanding the guidelines and laws that you must follow.
Covered entities Learn about the requirements you have as a HIPAA covered entity, what classifies an organization as a covered entity, and how to comply with the regulations.
Protecting PHI It is important to know what is meant by PHI (personal or protected health information), when it is allowable to share it and with whom, and how to keep it safe from cyber criminals.
HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules Patients have rights when it comes to their personal health information. Learn what is allowed and the safeguards that must be in place when sharing patient information over e-mail, text messaging, etc.
HIPAA breaches, violations, and penalties Penalties associated with HIPAA data breaches are at an all-time high. Learn how you can protect your organization by creating your book of evidence and other policies and procedures.
HIPAA, technology, and social media It may seem obvious that PHI doesn't belong on social media, but the line is sometimes unclear. It's important to understand how you can use technology to benefit your business without it resulting in a breach of your patients' data.
