HIPAA in Homecare: Protecting Your Patient's Privacy
Jumpstart your agency’s HIPAA training with HIPAA in Homecare: Protecting Your Patient’s Privacy
The privacy standards for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) took effect April 14, 2003. Your staff must be educated about the measures necessary to protect the privacy of patients’ health information, including any electronic, paper, or oral communications that can be used to identify a patient’s medical condition.
HIPAA in Homecare: Protecting your Patient’s Privacy, will help your entire staff learn their responsibilities. This video-with-study-guide meets the Federal requirements for staff education. Now, you can educate your entire staff in terms they can understand. During the video, dramatizations both in the office and in the patient’s home illustrate vital concepts, such as:
- protected health information (PHI)
- need to know
- minimum necessary
- and treatment, payment and operations (TPO).
This video also contains numerous examples to help your staff learn about:
- patient consent - what HIPAA requires, patient notification, and authorization
- computers and personal digital assistants (PDAs) - safeguards and risks
- communication affected by HIPAA - electronic, written, and verbal - in the office, patient’s home, and every where in between.
This program includes a video (approximately 35 minutes in length) and a written study guide, both contained in an attractive and sturdy case.
