HIPAA Privacy Rule Training: Why do you need it and what are the requirements

HIPAA Privacy Rule and an administrative safeguard of the HIPAA Security Rule set certain mandatory recommendations for training as HIPAA applies to different types of Covered Entity (CE) and Business Associate (BA). Also, training is recommended for the workforce to carry out their business functions correctly. Companies subjected to HIPAA rules should be aware and implement security awareness in the organization. HIPAA training is highly recommended for teams whose functions are connected to HIPAA regulations.

What should be done first? Consider the Objectives of HIPAA Training

HIPAA compliance requires different types of training. You should define which type of training for each separate team you require. Here risk assessment will help – it defines the function of each individual who may have contact with HIPAA rules, and it makes it possible to choose a training program for each individual’s function or role. The contents of a training program will depend on the functions or role of each individual employee, manager, or contractor. It is important that the program content is relevant to each trainee. Healthcare professionals, for example, do not need the same training as a HIPAA compliance officer or administrator. 

Targeted training can be time-consuming and resource intensive. In order for training to be effective, it has to be focused on definite goals. At EDI Academy, we offer HIPAA training bundle for Healthcare professionals, as well as conduct custom-made group training for certain roles and functions.
