Why do I need to take a HIPAA course?
It’s simple, we are required to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). In compliance with HIPAA, all our employees are required to complete HIPAA training and be aware of, understand, and agree to follow our organization’s policies & procedures to protect patient information.
In addition to meeting these HIPAA requirements, training and understanding our policies is critical in the fight against cybercriminals, who target healthcare more than ANY other industry.

Following each case study, you’ll go through “lessons learned”, which will provide details on the incident, the outcome, and how it could have been avoided.

How do I get credit for completing the course?
