Course Description

CE Course Description

The appropriate use of digital health information can help promote better health outcomes, smarter spending, and healthier people, but providers and individuals alike must trust that an individual’s health information is private and secure. The purpose of this intermediate level continuing education course, developed using information from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, is to help health care providers better understand how to integrate federal health information privacy and security requirements into their practices, and to ensure confidentiality and accuracy of electronic health records. Ways to help cultivate patients’ trust are included as well as specific HIPAA protections.

CE Course Objectives

2. Summarize provider responsibilities under The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and how these requirements pertain to an Electronic Health Record (EHR).
