HIPAA Training Based on Real Life Scenarios
Shuttleworth & Ingersoll offers live, in-person training for the staff of health care entities and health care business associates to ensure full compliance with privacy laws associated with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
Training packages may be arranged for a fixed fee depending on the needs of the workplace, and may include a discovery process, a review of policies, and in-person training for all employees.
Attorney Tricia Hoffman-Simanek works with clients to conduct live, in-person training, using real-life scenarios to make the training relatable to all those participating. HIPAA training sessions usually last between 90 to 120 minutes.
Common Topics for HIPAA Training
- Overview of HIPAA, why it matters, and who it affects
- How to safeguard protected information
- Legal ramifications of HIPAA violations
- Real-world fact patterns and case studies, tailored to each training scenario
- Best practices for using social media and text messaging
Having Tricia come in and present to our staff allowed us to create an organized, specific, and tailored training plan for our entire team. With real-life scenarios, our staff was able to comprehend HIPAA guidelines in a more meaningful and comprehensive way. This topic is of the utmost importance, and after this in-depth training, our staff feels comfortable and confident knowing that we are doing our best to protect our patients.
Our administration team had been doing an annual HIPAA review with our employees for a number of years. With our growing number of employees—now over 100—and the impact HIPAA has on all aspects of health care, we decided in 2018 to look at a different approach. We discussed a potential program with Tricia at Shuttleworth & Ingersoll, and it was exactly what we were looking for. Her presence providing the program impacted the staff in a way that an in-house presentation did not. The material she presented was well organized and exactly what we wanted. Even more beneficial was that she allowed time for staff to ask specific questions and discuss. We will be scheduling our next program with her soon.
