HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and is a U.S. federal law enacted in 1996 as an attempt at incremental healthcare reform. It was subsequently revised in 2009 with the ARRA/HITECH Act and again in 2013 with the Omnibus Rule.
HIPAA’s intent was to reform the healthcare industry by reducing costs, simplifying administrative processes and burdens, and improving the privacy and security of patients’ health information. Today HIPAA compliance mainly revolves around the last item: protecting the privacy and security of patients’ health information.
HIPAA was put in place to:
- Help protect patient’s privacy rights
- Protect “Protected Health Information” (PHI)
- Impose Regulations on Covered Entities and Business Associates
This HIPAA Compliance Course is an easy to understand course that will transform someone who knows nothing about HIPAA, to a person who has basic HIPAA understanding.
HIPAA Compliance is very important because it protects patient’s Protected Health Information. In addition, fines for not complying with HIPAA can be huge and can ruin the reputation of the doctor, dentist, hospital, or other medical facilities and practices.

A highly interactive format, where all delegates will be encouraged to engage and participate, share and gain from each other’s knowledge and experience. The lectures will rely on a bullet-based slide presentation enriched by group discussions around case studies, videos and checklists wherever applicable.
Through a multiple-instructional setting, the goal is to achieve the learning objectives by means of virtual technologies that match personal learning styles and by the inclusion of non-linear learning that aims at the development of just-in-time skills of adult learners.
At the same time and in order to allow participants maximum flexibility of scheduling, the learning will be conducted in an allochronic manner. Using a state-of-the-art training architecture, RMA will combine self-learning with assessments and online discussions.
The pedagogics – adapted explicitly to professionals in full-time work – will help train participants through several experiences: absorb (read); do (activity); intermingle (socialize); mirror (relate to one’s own reality).
