Why We Train?

 

Current Situation

  • Law (In § 164.518(b)  Requires anyone who touches medical files to become HIPAA compliant
  • Law continually changes which requires annual training and the reach of people who need to be compliant.
  • Laws are fairly ambiguous
  • Lack of training and standardization within the medical records handling field
  • Current HIPPA Training lacks  an all encompassing compliance training for staff, professional, & Compliance Officer as mandated BCI offers full package of modules for all record handlers to become compliant as well as certifications for all those trained.
  • Litigation is on the increase as awareness has increased
  • *1.5 Million dollar fine Mass Eye & Ear The laptop contained  ePHI – including patient prescriptions and clinical information – of some 3,621 individuals. 
  • **University of Pittsburgh cites 62,000 Records at risk
  • New York and Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center Fined 4.8 Million dollars *Noted the absence of training the staff was one of the reasons for this fine*
  • Many Training modules exist today in many forms but most do not….
  • Focusing on the employee, keeping them interactively engaged, making it clear and direct to make it understandable for the employee so they will only have to go through the course once covering all aspects for certification
  • Multiple Modules covering all elements of HIPAA laws.
