9 Benefits of Online HIPAA Training

     The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is an expansive act that covers health insurance access and the privacy and security of personal health records. If you are a healthcare provider, insurance company, or other covered entity, you will need to provide HIPAA training and certification to all your employees to ensure you stay in compliance with HIPAA. Failing to adhere to all compliance standards by not properly training your employees could result in costly fines from the government or civil action law suits.

Luckily, HIPAA training for your employees does not have to be a huge headache. There are plenty of simple and efficient online HIPAA training programs for your employees. With all the advantages of an online training program, there is no need to organize an in house training program for employees that wastes time and money. Using an online HIPAA training program has many advantages, some of them outlined below:

Low cost. Doing the entire training process virtually cuts HIPAA training costs dramatically. Many online training programs offer group discounts for groups of certain numbers, thus lowering the cost even further.

Access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Because online training is prerecorded, your trainees can access the training program when it works for their schedule. This is especially handy for health care professionals like nurses and doctors who often work irregular schedules.

Access from anywhere. With just a unique log in and internet access trainees can access the HIPAA training from anywhere. This feature is especially handy for trainees who frequently travel.

Unlimited testing. If any trainees fail to pass the training exams the first time around, they can retake the training as many times as they need. This relieves pressure from those trainees who may not perform well on tests or those who need a refresher.

Instantly print or download nationally recognized certificates once you have completed training. With an online program, there is no waiting to receive your certificate in the mail. Get instant gratification with an online downloaded certificate.

Fast, thorough training. With some programs, trainees can complete an entire HIPAA compliance in just 45 minutes. Shorter training programs free up time which also lessens overall costs of training.

Access to HIPAA training materials indefinitely. With many online HIPAA training programs, you can access the materials any time you would like once you have paid the initial set up fee. This feature is great if your trainees need a refresher course.

If you are an employer, online HIPAA courses often have the function to be able to upload your employees from Excel making it super easy to track who has taken and passed the HIPAA training.

Immediate updates to training materials. Housing all training materials in electronic format online, allows for online training programs to update any changes in HIPAA policies instantly ensuring all trainees are up to date.

From this list you can see the advantages of online HIPAA training programs are many. Enroll yourself or your employees today to keep in compliance with HIPAA regulations without all the work of organizing in house training.
