JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Availity, the nation's largest real-time health information network, announced the availability of a low-cost online education series that will help physician practices meet HIPAA training requirements.
"The security and handling of protected patient information is mission critical for any practice," said Karin Lindgren, SVP, general counsel and chief compliance officer at Availity. "One of the most important ways to guard against patient privacy violations is to ensure staff receives ongoing education and training on the latest threats and regulations."
Available in the Availity Learning Center, the on-demand HIPAA training is priced at $19.99 per person, and volume discounts are available for practices that buy in bulk. Hosted by patient privacy expert Mike Sacopulos, CEO of Medical Risk Institute, the topics covered in the specialty specific training include:
The HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCS) requires security and privacy training for all who come in contact with protected health information (PHI) and conducts audits to ensure industry-wide compliance. Individuals and staff members who successfully complete the training and pass the assessment will receive a certificate of HIPAA training completion. The Availity Learning Center electronically tracks these results should practices need verification.
