The Discovering HIPAA® Training Series is an interactive program built on the theory of discovery-based learning. Each participant works through a series of realistic scenarios where they discover the information for themselves and then learn what steps to take to ensure privacy and confidentiality of protected health information they may handle. Each scenario contains both audio and video depicting a real-life situation, using professional actors. Consequently, employees are encouraged to think about how they would handle the situation.
Whether you work in a doctor’s office, hospital, insurance company, third-party administrator, or any other covered entity or business associate covered by HIPAA, the Discovering HIPAA® Training Series’ interactive training approach is an effective method of providing HIPAA training that will stay with your employees. Participants in the Discovering HIPAA® Training Series receive a Document of Completion at the end of each course.
The Discovering HIPAA® Training Series is available in a two-set package and has been designed so participants can be trained at their own pace and schedule. The set sells for $55 per employee with volume discounts available.
