Description

Protecting healthcare data has become a necessity. The government has greatly increased its monitoring of data breaches, and has levied substantial penalties on non-compliant organizations. That, coupled with the constant threat of hacking and identify theft, has made compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) crucial. In addition to providing HIPAA and HITECH fundamentals, this course explains in detail the Safeguards of HIPAA’s Security Rule and the use and disclosure requirements of the Privacy Rule. The course will also identify what entities are subject to the HIPAA / HITECH requirements, address the government’s penalty structure, and how the “meaningful use” of healthcare data enters the picture.
