Certification in HIPAA regulations can provide a distinguishing factor for potential employer selection of employees in the healthcare information technology industry. Also provides a solid foundation to quickly identify potential violations of HIPAA regulations and a solid knowledge of how to correct problems. Employers will realize fewer potential loss incidents from HIPAA violations when employees are more thoroughly trained in the regulations. Patients will have greater confidence in a healthcare providers’ ability to protect their personal information.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is about insurance portability, fraud, and administrative simplification. In this HIPAA training boot camp we examine basics of the Administrative Simplification portion of the HIPAA legislation. We examine HIPAA Transactions and Code Sets, Identifiers, Privacy and Security. It is this provision of the HIPAA regulation that is the watershed legislation for healthcare information systems.
This HIPAA provision is resulting in substantial changes in business development processes, policies and procedures for all covered entities – providers (hospitals, laboratories, and pharmacies), clearinghouses and payers.
