The Employer and HIPAA Training

image

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is a federal law enacted in 1996 and  subsequently revised in 2009 with the ARRA/HITECH Act and again in 2013 with the Omnibus Rule. 


The latest changes to the Act subject employers to much higher enforcement risks and significantly increased exposure to six- and seven-figure civil monetary penalties.  Ensuring your employees are up-to-speed on the fundamental aspects of HIPAA and its revisions will help to decrease your risk of exposure.  Our on-site training program provides you with the ability to customize content to address your unique exposure.  Contact us or call (610) 566 0711 for details.
