Anyone with access to patient records must be trained in HIPAA and patient privacy requirements every 2 years.
New hires must be trained within 60 days of their hire date.

The biggest concern patients have regarding their private data is not that their health information will be compromised, but that their PERSONAL information may be stolen and used to commit identity theft. Patients often express concern that in the doctor’s or lawyer’s office, “there are files all over the place. Anyone can get to them”.
HIPAA300 and National Education Seminars certifies you and your staff in required HIPAA training and patient privacy rules. We provide each certified member of your staff with a certificate proving they successfully completed the program and the certification test. They are each listed in the HIPAA300 National Certification Database, which is made available to the Office of the Inspector General and the Dept. of Health and Human Services upon request. Your office or clinic will also be provided with a certificate informing your client / patient that your office adheres to HIPAA standards and that protecting their private information is a priority with your company.
