Course Overview

The use of technology has bloomed in the healthcare industry. While its use has improved the delivery and continuity of care, it increases the chance that an unauthorized person will be able to access individual’s protected health information, or PHI. Therefore, to protect electronic PHI, or e-PHI, your organization is required to follow a specific HIPAA rule, known as the Security Rule. To maintain compliance with HIPAA, all healthcare workers must follow the requirements of the Security Rule. In this course, the learner will learn about the Security Rule and ways they can prevent breaches.
