HIPAA training is one of the most important aspects of HIPAA compliance. But why is this so? Well, how can employees be expected to follow the HIPAA regulations if they don’t know what they are? HIPAA compliance training provides employees with a HIPAA introduction including how to recognize protected health information (PHI), proper uses and disclosures of PHI, how to keep PHI secure, and how to report a breach of PHI.
Most companies charge people simply for employee HIPAA training when training is not enough for your organization to be HIPAA compliant. HIPAA compliance also requires organizations to conduct annual self-audits, implement remediation plans, have written policies and procedures, have signed business associate agreements, and implement incident management.
