Purpose and Introduction:
Congratulations! You are now a healthcare provider! As most people know from dealing with their personal doctors and pharmacy, HIPAA is a serious topic that all healthcare providers must adhere to.
Patient privacy is paramount. As healthcare providers, we are trusted members of society. We are called into peoples homes and lives during their most trying times. We will be given access to a patient's most private matters and we will be entrusted with vital information. By law we are forbidden to divulge this information to unauthorized individuals.
To ensure you are prepared to encounter this level of trust, we require all members complete our HIPAA in-service training module prior to your new member orientation.
