HIPAA for Health Information Management

Training for Healthcare

It is most important for all members of the Health Information Management (HIM) workforce who work with PHI to understand the Privacy Rule.  HIPAA for Health Information Management is key. To accomplish this, you must learn about HIPAA through a carefully crafted HIPAA for HIM Program such as that offered by HIPAA Associates.

Health Information Management

Health Information Management (HIM) professionals are in a very special situation regarding HIPAA.  HIM professionals are often “acquiring, analyzing, and protecting digital and traditional medical information vital to providing quality patient care,” according to The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). In addition, HIM professionals need to understand an organization’s workflow, and how the latest applications will play a role in the management of protected health information (PHI). 

HIM professionals are responsible for the management and protection of most protected health information (PHI).  They are often asked to decide who has access to PHI within and without the organization.  They are responsible for the processing of outside requests for records from patients, family, local authorities and legal entities.  It is in the best interest of an organization to train all HIM professionals.

The HIPAA for HIM program was created especially for all Health Information Management professionals who work with protected health information (PHI) while providing HIM services.
