About this Course

This course offers an introduction to HIPAA compliance for anyone who falls under the Business Associate category. It's customized for the concerns of answering services, medical billing, medical transcription, software/IT companies, marketing agencies, cleaning services, medical device manufactures, legal services, consultants, and similar healthcare-adjacent business services. 

We'll go over the essential information you need for compliance with the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), including: 

  • HIPAA Privacy Rule 
  • HIPAA Security Rule 
  • HIPAA Enforcement Rule 
  • HITECH Act 
  • Omnibus and Final Rules 
  • 2021/2022 Updates - ONC and CMS Final Rule 

The Omnibus Final Rule changed the game for Business Associates' HIPAA compliance liabilities. To avoid potential criminal and civil penalties, it's important that Business Associates understand these changes. 

You'll get a certificate of completion to print for your records, and this program is worth 0.2 IACET-approved CEUs.
