Preventing HIPAA Violations at Work

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a term that is on the mind of virtually every organization who has access to an employee's’ personal health information. Handling individual health records with care requires a strong moral compass and a firm idea of what type of conduct violates HIPAA and puts your organization at risk.

With the launch of our new HIPAA training course we have created a HIPAA Risk Checklist for your organization to inform employees on common violations like, discussing patient information in a public place and common sense precautions; such as, locking your computer screen when you leave your desk.

It is important that every employee is aware of the consequences of violating HIPAA Privacy Laws and knows the steps to take if a violation has occurred. This checklist will help your employees become more alert to situations that may not seem harmful to your organization but can cause much damage if infringed upon.

Check out our HIPAA Risk Checklist today and give your employees the awareness they need to make smart and lawful decisions.
