HIPAA mandates that all medical office staff (including physicians) be trained on the HIPAA privacy rules, security policies and procedures. The HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule Training Manual is now available to non-members. This manual provides a general training and overview and can be used as a part of your HIPAA training program. The manual contains:
- HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule Quiz
- Customizable checklist detailing the specific privacy and security rule responsibilities of the employee
- Employee certification form
The HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule Training Manual is a joint effort by the California Medical Association (CMA) and PrivaPlan® Associates, Inc.
For members the manual is free. The cost for non-members is $15. The manual is available in CMA's resource library.
Another resource for HIPAA compliance is the CMA/PrivaPlan HIPAA Privacy and Security Compliance Toolkit. The toolkit is customized for California law and contains customized forms, policies and procedures to ensure HIPAA compliance.
