Introduction

Welcome to our HIPAA course! This course is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the regulations it sets forth for the protection of electronic protected health information (ePHI).

HIPAA is a federal law that applies to covered entities, such as healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses, and their business associates that handle ePHI. The law establishes national standards for the protection of ePHI and includes requirements for privacy, security, and breach notification.

As a covered entity or business associate, it’s essential to understand the HIPAA requirements and how to implement policies and procedures that comply with the law. Failure to comply with HIPAA regulations can result in significant penalties, both financial and reputational, and can harm individuals whose health information has been compromised.

This course will provide an overview of the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules, including the types of information that are protected, the requirements for protecting ePHI, and the penalties for non-compliance.

Whether you are a healthcare provider, health plan, or healthcare clearinghouse, or a business associate that handles ePHI, this course will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to ensure compliance with HIPAA regulations and protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of ePHI.
