HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is one of the most important laws regarding the privacy of medical information affecting employers and employees regardless of the type of industry. This poster is designed to educate you on how HIPAA affects your organization, specially how it affects health insurance coverage and the privacy of protected health information.
HIPAA training is required for every healthcare organization in the country and is required to be observed by every medical professional worker when dealing with patients and their medical records. HIPAA is also required to be observed by employers and employees who have access to medical records and health information, such as those in Human Resources, when dealing with things like Health Insurance, Doctor's Notes, and Workers Compensation.
