The ExpertRating Online HIPAA Training Course
(leading to ExpertRating HIPAA Compliance Skills Certification).

Are you a health care professional or considering a career in the health care industry? Do you provide products or services to a health care organization? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then it's mandatory that you understand the requirements of HIPAA compliance. This groundbreaking legislation requires all health care professionals to take careful steps to protect private information. But what exactly does HIPAA require?


In this course, we'll demystify the compliance process. We'll focus specifically on the Administrative Simplification portion of HIPAA, starting by defining the lingo of HIPAA and identifying the important players. Then we'll cover transactions, code sets, and identifiers, which are all key elements in electronic health care transmissions.

We'll use real-world examples to help explain the Privacy Rule, which governs patient rights, disclosure of protected health information (PHI), business associates, and many other relationships within the health care industry. Since computers are an integral part of health care these days, we'll see how they fit into the Security Rule. We'll also examine administrative safeguards, physical safeguards, technical safeguards, and policy and procedure creation—all of which are crucial components of the Security Rule.


By the time you finish this course, you'll be confident and capable of implementing HIPAA's requirements in your own organization. If you're just starting your career in the health care field, you'll have a priceless addition to your resume.

One of the many advantages of HIPAA is that it helps to save costs by reducing unnecessary paperwork.

A national standard for electronic transfers of health related data was passed by the Congress (Bush Administration) in 1996 in the form of The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), also known as the Kennedy-Kassebaum Bill. HIPPAA helped to remove the apprehensions among the public about privacy and security of their personal health data. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) framed some rules for privacy of this data. The HIPAA Privacy Rule or the Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information was issued by the DHHS after many changes were made to it.


 

The HIPAA Act of August 21, 1996 has pushed new Federal regulations which ensure that the private information of patients is secure. This Act also sets a standard format for the physicians to use while undertaking electronic transactions. The ExpertRating HIPPAA Compliance Certification will cover all the three important areas related to HIPPAA which include- Portability, Accounting and Administrative Simplification.
