We are excited to announce that the HIPAA training classes have been updated for 2017. The update includes the HIPAA Security and Privacy classes for both HIPAA Covered Entities and Business Associates.
The training now utilizes more multimedia, video and engaging content. In fact, we have completely updated and reproduced our training videos. Voice-over throughout the training classes make it even easier for employees to understand the HIPAA regulations and how to protect patient information.
50,000 people can’t be wrong
We have trained over 50,000 employees and have received a lot of positive feedback on our training classes. We have heard that the HIPAA training is interesting and reduces the complexity surrounding HIPAA. We have incorporated a lot of the feedback that we have received to make the classes even more interesting. We believe that the best way for employees to understand how to protect patient information is to ensure that they are engaged in the training content.
More current topics
While employees need to understand the HIPAA regulations and what they can and can’t do with patient information, it is also important for them to understand current threats to patient information. The updated HIPAA training focuses on the threats of malware, phishing scams and ransomware. Criminals are targeting healthcare organizations and it is extremely important for employees to know how to recognize phishing scams, phone scams and social media scams.
