The HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules dictate that all who may come into contact with protected health information go through a training on HIPAA policy, and that there is documentation to prove that the training has been completed. This program will train you in the basic HIPAA rules regarding the use, transmission, security and privacy of healthcare data. Upon passage of the HIPAA Act the Department of Health and Human Services was required to issue two separate regulations referred to as the Privacy Rule and the Security Rule. These regulations require healthcare organizations to adopt processes and procedures to ensure the highest degree of patient confidentiality. These processes include administrative, physical and technical safeguards to ensure that medical information is stored, transmitted and received in a safe and secure manner. HIPAA regulations cover a broad scope and impact virtually every department of every entity that has access to personal health information. Hospitals, medical practices, insurance companies, and other healthcare organizations are undergoing significant changes in the way they handle patient information. When covered entities use or transmit protected health information in any form, they must comply not only with the Privacy and Security Rules, but also with any state laws regarding privacy of medical records. In the event of a conflict between HIPAA and state law, HIPAA preempts state law unless the state law is stricter. In other words, whichever provides greater protection to patients must be followed.
