HIPAA Training: It’s not only required, it’s essential for compliance

While HIPAA rules require regular training of staff, it’s not enough to simply go through the motions of attending a lecture or watching a video.  HIPAA education should address things that staff members working with ePHI really need to know.  And it should be re-enforced often.

 

Here are resources from MyHIPAA Guide that can help train staff in the following categories.  In addition, watch for our webinars on a variety of HIPAA subjects.
