Training for Health Information Management

It is most important for all members of the Health Information Management (HIM) workforce who work with PHI to understand the HIPAA Privacy Rule.  HIPAA Associates has designed a course specifically for HIM Professionals entitled HIPAA for Health Information Management. Through this course you will come to understand the key features of the HIPAA Privacy Rule that affect Health Information Management professionals.

Health Information Management (HIM) professionals are in a very special situation regarding HIPAA. HIM professionals are often acquiring, analyzing, and protecting digital and traditional medical information vital to providing quality patient care, according to The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). In addition, HIM professionals need to understand an organization’s workflow, and how the latest applications will play a role in the management of protected health information (PHI).

HIM professionals are responsible for the management and protection of most protected health information (PHI). They are often asked to decide who has access to PHI within and without the organization. They are responsible for the processing of outside requests for records from patients, family, local authorities and legal entities. It is in the best interest of an organization to train all HIM professionals.

The HIPAA for HIM program was created especially for all Health Information Management professionals who work with protected health information (PHI) while providing HIM services. This training is ideal for the following:

Health information management professional, electronic medical record personnel, directors of HIM departments, health information specialist, health care data analyst and release of information specialist.

HIPAA Certification & the OCR

HIPAA Certification is a term commonly used by many vendors today claiming the ability to certify organizations on HIPAA and make them HIPAA Compliant.  This is a misconception actively addressed by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) with oversight of the HIPAA Regulations.

The Department of Health & Human services (HHS) and OCR have made it clear that in regard to HIPAA certification they do not endorse any private consultants’ or education providers’ seminar, material, or systems, and do not certify any persons or products as “HIPAA compliant.”  The Privacy Rule does not require attendance at any specific seminars.  The OCR has taken a further step and indicated that anyone making false or misleading representations about HHS or OCR in regard to HIPAA training and compliance may be reported to the OCR.

HIPAA Associates does not claim to offer HIPAA certification.  Instead we offer a HIPAA Compliance training program created with the requirements of the HIPAA Privacy Rule in mind.  Our training is based on in-depth knowledge of the law and the benefit of many years of experience working with HIPAA and the OCR.  These courses include information on best practices and cover all of the necessary information you will need to understand the basic concepts of HIPAA. We follow the intent of the OCR in all of our training programs.
