The HIPAA Privacy & Security Certificate (“HPSC”) is an online professional certificate included in HLTC2100. The HIPAA Privacy & Security Certificate program lays the foundation of training for the latest standards required of all employees in healthcare. With the enactment of HIPAA’s Standards, the responsibility to keep certain health information secure, confidential, and private has become a legally enforceable responsibility for a facility and its employees. To be successfully compliant, all employees must know and understand their responsibilities with regards to privacy and security of protected health information (PHI) in any form (paper, voice, or electronic). In the HPSC: HIPAA Privacy & Security Certificate, a HIPAA Privacy and Security foundation is provided and reinforced by reviewing pertinent terms, definitions and standards.
