Healthcare practitioners have a professional and ethical obligation to maintain the privacy and security of patient information. Three primary federal laws govern your legal responsibility: Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Health Information Technology for Clinical and Economic Health Act (HITECH) and the Omnibus Final Rule. Understanding your legal obligation and how these laws pertain to your practice is essential.
This 10-hour course teaches the History of Privacy, the Privacy Rule and the Security Rule and how these laws pertain to your practice.
