Graduates of HIPAA certification training

For pursuing HIPPA certification, you may have to know all the ins and outs of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). These regulations, enforced by the Department of Health and Human Services, were created to protect the privacy of patients by keeping their private health care information confidential. Almost all legitimate health care providers, businesses, and services are HIPPA compliant to ensure the ethical, reliable treatment of patients without revealing any private information.

Is a Career in HIPAA Certification Training Right For Me?

The complicated and detailed requirement of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) may have an expansive effect throughout the healthcare industry. The HIPAA creates significant limitation on how personal information may be accessed, transferred, and maintained.

Who needs to be aware of the HIPAA requirements?

HIPAA requires administrators to know and comply with exclusion rules, issuance of credible coverage certificates, creditor for health care coverage, and integration with Qualified Medical Child Support Orders(QMCSO), COBRA, and Mental Health Parity Act among other laws. Those professionals who must be aware of HIPAA requirements may include:

  • Human resource personnel
  • Advisors
  • Consultants
  • Administrators
  • Service providers

Types of HIPAA Programs

These courses may enable healthcare personnel from all levels ensure that the privacy of patients is not violated. Experts recommend that everyone who works in healthcare, from the CEO to the data entry clerk, attend them at least once every three years.

Ideal for small practices to build professional development without hurting their budget, not to mention the practicity it may provide to healthcare professionals in general who need to access information about HIPAA.

Careers in HIPAA

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that one out of three workers is actually employed in the healthcare industry. Healthcare workers may work in different segments at varying levels but they share a single commonality: the responsibility to follow healthcare laws. The HIPAA is a highly specific requirement that is aimed at protecting sensitive patient care information. It also standardizes electronic health data and regulates its transfer.

The HIPAA was created in 1996 and every healthcare organization was required to comply by 2003. It is still a relatively new aspect in healthcare. Enrolling in a HIPAA certification program may enable students to learn about healthcare laws and how they may be integrated into a facilities' compliance program.

Graduates of HIPAA certification training may also choose from a variety of career paths, such as:

  • HIPAA security specialist
  • HIPAA administrator
  • Medical information technician 
  • HIPAA compliance officer
  • HIPAA database engineer
  • HIPAA application integration developer
  • Chief Privacy Officer

Job Expectations

The tasks of an HIPAA administrator may be extensive and varied. They may be in charge of maintaining HIPAA standard in the institution and ensuring that employees comply with the provisions provided in the act. In addition, they may also be called upon to take charge of maintaining the patient's right to health insurance.
