The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has launched a video training module for health care providers on patients’ right of access under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule.
The video module provides an in-depth review of the components of the HIPAA right of access and ways in which it enables individuals to be more involved in their own care. The module provides helpful suggestions about how health care providers can integrate aspects of the HIPAA access right into medical practice.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will receive free Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit for physicians and Continuing Education (CE) credit for health care professionals.
The module is available via Medscape at: http://www.medscape.org/viewarticle/876110 or via OCR’s Training and Resources webpage at https://www.hhs.gov/hipaa/for-professionals/training/index.html
Training solutions include the gold standard HIPAA credential, Certified HIPAA Professional (CHP) and our world’s first compliance and cyber security credential, Certified Security Compliance Specialist (CSCS).
