HIPAA: Privacy and Security in Depth for Healthcare Providers
Product Code: 78754
Overview:As we transition from a paper-based administrative system to an electronic information environment, the American healthcare system is undergoing a dramatic transformation. HIPAA: Privacy & Security in Depth covers the Privacy and Security Rules of the Health Insurance Portability & accountability Act of 1996. The "teeth" of the HIPAA law are five administrative Simplification Provisions: Electronic Transfers, Unique Identifiers, Code Sets, Privacy and Security. Privacy and Security are the most controversial and complex provisions of the multifaceted HIPAA law. The Privacy Rules govern how medical information is protected, what medical information a patient can access and how it must be obtained. The Security Rules govern how the information is stored and secured. The program explains how Protected Health Information (PHI) is transmitted and stored. The viewer will gain an understanding of how the Privacy and Security provisions fit together to create a secure healthcare system where information is exchanged more efficiently than ever before. The program is helpful to healthcare providers, business associates, the public and lawyers.
