Are you a health care professional or considering a career in the health care industry? Do you provide products or services to a health care organization? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then it's mandatory that you understand the compliance requirements of HIPAA, and subsequent rules and laws (through March 31, 2014) that affect HIPAA, including ARRA/HITECH, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Administrative Simplification Compliance Act (ASCA), the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act (PSQIA) and the OMNIBUS rules. These laws require all health care professionals to take careful steps to protect protected health information (PHI). But what exactly do all these regulations require? In this course, we'll demystify the compliance process. We'll focus specifically on the Administrative Simplification portion of HIPAA, starting by defining the lingo of HIPAA, ARRA/HITECH, ASCA, ACA, and the OMNIBUS rules. While we're at it, we'll identify all the important players. Next, we'll zero in on the Administrative Simplification rules of HIPAA, starting with transactions, code sets, and identifiers, which are all key elements in the HIPAA-mandated electronic health care transmissions. We'll use real-world examples to help explain the Privacy Rule, which governs patient rights and disclosure of protected health information (PHI), We'll explain what's meant by covered entities (CE), business associates (BA), and many other relationships within the health care industry impacted by HIPAA. Since computers are an integral part of health care these days, we'll see how they fit into the Security Rule. We'll also examine administrative safeguards, physical safeguards, technical safeguards, and policy and procedure creation—all of which are crucial components of the Security Rule. Last, but not least, we'll focus on the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), HIPAA's watchdog organization, and learn about the civil and criminal penalties for non-compliance. By the time you finish this course, you'll be confident and capable of implementing HIPAA's Administrative Simplification rules, and the laws impacting it, in your own organization. If you're just starting your career in the health care field, you'll have a priceless addition to your resume.
