HIPAA Training

HIPAA Online Training Course

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a complicated set of statutory and regulatory requirements that govern how protected health information is created, accessed, stored, and transmitted. HIPAA is a critical topic for many employers because violations of HIPAA can lead to highly disruptive and expensive investigations, fines and litigation expenses. But beyond that, the way you treat sensitive and personal healthcare information plays a critical role in how you engage your clients and the individuals involved. How you approach HIPAA and treat sensitive healthcare information can either strengthen - or compromise - both your organization’s culture and reputation.
