TMC HIPAA Online Training
Covered entities and business associates have access to information that is valuable. Both are required by law to protect this information to ensure that the information is kept confidential, the integrity is not impacted in any manner and is available for the delivery of health care services.
TMC’s HIPAA training program outlines key concepts included in both the Privacy and Security rules along with a description of the impact of Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) on the protection of patient health information. The impact of a breach of protected health information is far-reaching and costly. Practical strategies are reviewed to ensure the protection of information and systems from inappropriate access, malware, and human error.
This course is approximately 45 minutes. At the end of this section the worker will:
- Identify and discuss the basic tenants of the Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules.
- Identify and discuss threats to the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability of Protected Health Information.
- Discuss reasonable safeguards to protect patient information.
