People who work in healthcare spend every day dealing with the health and well-being of the people they’re looking after. But they also have another big responsibility in healthcare: looking after the personal information of the people they treat.
Because dealing with a lot of people means dealing with a lot of information, the US House of Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) back in 1996. Many organizations need to be legally compliant with this. But what is HIPAA, who needs to be compliant, and how? This course will give your staff the information they need.
