HIPAA Training

HIPAA Laws & Compliance

Did you know the HIPAA Security Rule requires that all staff of covered entities and business associates receive security awareness training annually, and that training records may be requested by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) during an audit or compliance review? 

That’s right. Existing staff needs the training. New staff needs the training. Existing and new business associates need the training.

OCR within the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) enforces this policy in order to protect patient privacy. 

Colington Consulting provides comprehensive HIPAA training courses that instruct members of your organization on protecting patient health information of all forms, including electronic health records.

Call us today at (800) 733-6379 or use our online contact form to request a HIPAA risk assessment to identify your company’s compliance vulnerabilities or discuss your specific training requirements.

Our “7 Cs” are the reason that health professionals choose HIPAA training from Colington Consulting:

Customized

Colington Consulting develops security awareness training specifically designed for your practice or business office environment, and we offer convenient options for implementation. 

We can provide training at your office or business within the greater Washington, DC area and throughout the Mid-Atlantic states. 

Alternatively, we can provide training through a webinar or through a web-based learning management system (LMS) platform.

Comprehensive

Our training addresses the four HHS-required implementation specifications:

  • Security Reminders
  • Protection from Malicious Software
  • Log-in Monitoring
  • Password Management

Our training covers standard HIPAA privacy and security policies and procedures, including the appropriate uses and disclosures of protected health information (PHI) and the safeguards that must be implemented to protect the information from improper uses and disclosures. 

Our training covers all required areas of HIPAA compliance and includes best practices and case studies while looking at how breaches occur and actual violations.

Clear

Colington Consulting makes sure the entire workforce has a thorough understanding and awareness of everyone’s responsibilities in protecting patients’ charts and electronic health records. 

We use concrete examples and easy-to-understand terminology to explain exactly what is expected, what constitutes a violation, and what consequences result from noncompliance.

Cautionary

Our training covers penalties for violations so your entire workforce is aware of potential consequences, such as termination, fines, criminal prosecution, and lawsuits. Our training helps you to establish a culture of compliance.

Credible

Our classes are developed and taught by an experienced instructor: president of Colington Consulting, Jay Hodes. 

Mr. Hodes has 30 years of combined experience in risk assessments, site security evaluation, training, policy and procedures assessments, and federal law enforcement management. He is the former Assistant Inspector General for Investigations at the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Current

Colington Consulting keeps up-to-date on regulations, trends, policies, and procedures. 

We analyze new reported breaches to see how they occurred and then formulate and develop best practices to help your organization avoid similar situations. 

We pass this information on to you by conducting initial training and offering periodic refreshers.

Certified

A certificate is issued to all who complete the LMS training. This certificate serves as your organization’s formal documentation of who received the training and when. 

For all in-office training and webinars, a list of attendees is provided and is certified by our instructor, serving as your proof of training.
