What You'll Discover
from this Course:

This course is an introduction to confidentiality and privacy under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA was established to make healthcare administration more efficient by setting standards for transferring, receiving and handling patient information while protecting it from inappropriate use or disclosure.

Health care providers and their business associates are therefore required to develop, follow and enforce policies and procedures to safeguard protected health information (PHI). Covered topics include:

- Administrative Simplification Provision
- HIPAA Omnibus
- Requirements
- Penalties
- HIPAA Manual
