Group Training for HIPAA

We provide HIPAA Group Training for all organizations who must comply with the HIPAA Rule whose major goal is to safeguard individuals’ health information. This standard addresses the use of protected health information (PHI) by covered entities which are providers, Health Plans and Health Care Clearinghouses. In addition, business associates are also responsible for complying with the HIPAA Rules. The Security Rule is meant to protect PHI that is transferred electronically using technical and non-technical standards. All covered entities and business associates that deal with ePHI must understand follow this guideline through regular HIPAA Group Training.

HIPAA Associates – recognized by The Balance Small Business

Its group training programs are designed for busy providers and built around practical applications they will understand.

HIPAA Certification & the OCR

HIPAA Certification is a term commonly used by many vendors today claiming the ability to certify organizations on HIPAA and make them HIPAA Compliant.  This is a misconception actively addressed by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) with oversight of the HIPAA Regulations.

The Department of Health & Human services (HHS) and OCR have made it clear that in regard to HIPAA certification they do not endorse any private consultants’ or education providers’ seminar, material, or systems, and do not certify any persons or products as “HIPAA compliant.”  The Privacy Rule does not require attendance at any specific seminars.  The OCR has taken a further step and indicated that anyone making false or misleading representations about HHS or OCR in regard to HIPAA training and compliance may be reported to the OCR.

HIPAA Associates does not claim to offer HIPAA certification.  Instead we offer a HIPAA Compliance training program created with the requirements of the HIPAA Privacy Rule in mind.  Our training is based on in-depth knowledge of the law and the benefit of many years of experience working with HIPAA and the OCR.  These courses include information on best practices and cover all of the necessary information you will need to understand the basic concepts of HIPAA. We follow the intent of the OCR in all of our training programs.
