CINTAS ONLINE HIPAA TRAINING COURSE (UPDATED TO MEET FINAL OMNIBUS RULE)
Learn to Comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), healthcare providers and companies involved in the healthcare industry are required to protect the privacy and security of patient data and personal information. Compliance with stringent HIPAA laws protects individuals who share details of their health, finances and personal lives when they are at their most vulnerable.
HIPAA training is essential for HR managers and employees, however the time and work required poses a major challenge for most organizations. To further complicate matters, The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, amended HIPAA to require "covered entities" — healthcare providers, health insurance plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and "business associates" who contract with these entities — to create and implement information-security policies covering protected health information that is electronically transmitted or maintained. The HIPAA-HITECH Omnibus Rule, enacted in 2013, strengthened patient privacy protections and made other important changes to HIPAA regulations.
A Cintas Online HIPAA Training Course is the easy, effective and time-efficient way to ensure all involved understand and stay compliant with HIPAA regulations. Protect your business from failure to adhere to patient privacy laws. Trust Cintas’ online training to make your entire organization HIPAA-informed.
