  5. The program helped me understand more about HIPAA, in many ways. At first, I thought HIPAA was a law that keeps a covered entity from releasing any information on the insured, but when in took the program I understood that there is more to HIPAA. Since I got a better understanding of HIPAA, it has made it easier for me to explain to our members and help make them more aware. I’m glad I had the opportunity to take this program.Thank you for your time.

  15. New challenges in the integral health care to all patients have arisen. Nowadays, not only a high-quality medical assitance is required but also a strong protection of patient privacy is mandatory facing all potential threats. Awareness within all health care providers needs to be implemented regardless the setting in which the access to and possible disclosure of protected health information takes place.After throughly reviewing the material provided, the HIPAA concept itself is taken to a new level of organization, where all human and logistics resources are integrated to build a reliable, proficient and responsible entity. HIPAA policies aiming to excelence must be addressed, by stablishing clear, straightforward circuits in procedures, practices and documentation. Every member must be included in the process, making sure that individual level of scope is well defined and by doing so developing a judicious practice, respectful of patients, medical institutions, public policies, and civil rights  regarding health-care information.From a personal point of view, the knowledge and mastery of HIPAA privacy and security policies becomes the best  tool to set new standards of quality, as a proactive team-member, in addition to regular assistance duties, monitoring the appropriate sharing, employing, applying and disclosure of health protected information is pivotal in a day-to-day basis.The HIPAA certification course provided by your company is a very comprehensive, yet enjoyable way to get involved in an ever-changing world of HIPAA policies.I strongly recommend to all health care professionals to undertake this journey under your guidance, assuring the best possible outcomes from a well-organized,  trustworthy support group.

  16. By doing CHPA course I got a more accurate knowledge of HIPAA regulations, I learned about the Privacy and Security rules and how they apply to Covered Entities and the different types of Business Associates. I acquired a deeper understanding on the PHI and the rules to use and disclose it in a safe way like the Minimum Necessary and TPO disclosures.I learned about the Organizational requirements and Safeguards (Administrative, Physical, Technical) that should be implemented in order to protect PHI and to be compliant with Privacy and Security rules, as well as how to create adequate policies and procedures , the applicable sanctions and the documentation requirements.I got a clear Idea of the rights individuals have on their own PHI such as amendments, restriction requests and the right to be informed by knowing the Notice of Privacy PracticesNow I am aware that Contingency plans are part of Security rule and benefit everyone since they prevent loss of information and allow the companies to have a plan for managing emergencies.Thanks to this course I have a more clear vision of the consequences of information breaches, how to avoid them, what to do when they happen (notification) and their consequences at civil and legal levels.I really think that HIPAA training is pivotal for any company that works with Health information and for its employees since HIPAA compliance is a legal requirement. Knowledge on HIPAA is a valuable tool to perform work in a legally safe way for both the trained employee and the company, and is a plus that individual has for growing professionally.Finally, I want to add in a very personal way that in the development of my job, and as I see how HIPAA rules are implemented and how topics and questionnaires in these courses are so professional and serious, I realize the very big magnitude of these politics, and by having this knowledge I have the tools to surveil and improve the compliance of my team mates, my company and myself with HIPAA rules.

  17. The HIPAA lessons and training program was especially useful in understanding the law and how it relates to government, people and service providers in the medical world.  The audio along with the visual portion of the presentation was very helpful in comprehending the lesson.Myself being in the technical area, management and security are the primary factors in technology today, while my main purpose in SHI international is making sure this function is carried out by creating a secure infrastructure and environment.  I feel it’s important and mandatory that all persons related in this field be trained and understand the importance of this lesson.

  34. The CHPA course was very detailed but in a format that was easy to follow. The information was all inclusive. I have been in the medical profession for almost 30 years and learned quite a bit of information taking this course. I feel that we all need to refresh our memory regarding important information in the medical field. The issue of privacy is one of the most important issues we have to deal with. People are sharing very detailed and personal issues with me and I am in a very important position as to how I treat that information. I always thought that I had a healthy respect of others personal information and how I treat that information. I have found that I take a new attitude toward the professionalism of nursing after going through this process of CHPA certification. This process will assist me through my life in improving the care I give those I interact with both on a professional as well as private level.
