One of the administrative requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule is to implement a security awareness and training program. And one of the implementation specifics is to implement security reminders.
(5)(i) Standard: Security awareness and training. Implement a security awareness and training program for all members of its workforce (including management).
(ii) Implementation specifications. Implement:
(A) Security reminders (Addressable).
Periodic security updates
One of the best ways to protect electronic protected health information (ePHI) is to make sure employees are trained on how to protect it. Implementing a security training program is not easy. Implementing security reminders is very time consuming and difficult.
