To Learn More CHP

Why sign up with CHP?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is about insurance portability, fraud, and administrative simplification. In this HIPAA training boot camp we examine basics of the Administrative Simplification portion of the HIPAA legislation. We examine HIPAA Transactions and Code Sets, Identifiers, Privacy and Security. It is this provision of the HIPAA regulation that is the watershed legislation for healthcare information systems.

This HIPAA provision is resulting in substantial changes in business development processes, policies and procedures for all covered entities – providers (hospitals, laboratories, and pharmacies), clearinghouses and payers.

Learning Objectives

This Certified HIPAA Professional certification training helps you better understand HIPAA’s Administrative Simplification Act as well as how to create a framework for initiating and working towards a blueprint for HIPAA compliance.

From this course you will learn the following about HIPAA
  1. Understand why HIPAA requirements will cause significant changes in policies, procedures and processes within the organization in the handling of patient records.
  2. Examine how implementing HIPAA will affect the way healthcare entities organize and staff to achieve and monitor compliance with patient privacy/confidentiality needs.
  3. Step through qualifications and positioning strategies for a Privacy Officer and requirements for a Information Security Officer.
  4. Learn why HIPAA compliance is better focused as a business issue than as an IT issue, although IT will play a major role in implementing compliant systems.
  5. Review specific requirements and implementation features within each security category.

Step through how to plan and prepare for HIPAA compliance. HIPAA is about awareness first, assessment second and finally action focused on gaps identified.

“I’m the President of a small Healthcare IT consulting firm, and I am the second of our staff to attend an ecfirst HIPAA training course. In my opinion the course was well organized, well presented, and a wealth of information was provided for all of the students to learn. The instructor, Lorna Waggoner, was passionate about the topic, and was able to bring the material to life with her many personal anecdotes and experience. The materials provided were well written, accurate, and easy to read, which helped translate dry Federal Law into usable material. The venue was perfect for the course, easy to get to, had free WiFi, and excellent lunch food was provided. I would recommend this course and ecfirst to anyone seeking to gain more knowledge and expertise about HIPAA legislation. It was a very pleasant experience.”
Evan Corstorphine
The Portable CIO

“The CHP course was a well condensed course with excellent delivery of the needed regulations for my staff to be able to talk the talk and know how to walk the walk on their own. The instructor’s (Lorna Waggoner) witty jokes and delivery of the information made it easier for myself, and later my staff, to comprehend and retain the information being presented to us. During the CSCS™ class my staff enjoyed Allen’s teaching technique, although Ali taught when I went I found the information was delivered both times in an equally impressive, condensed but retainable manner and we all came away from both classes knowing the information and not just memorizing a bunch of acronyms. I highly recommend ecfirst.”

“I thought the Certified HIPAA Professional course was extremely worthwhile and helped to clarify the murkiness that is HIPAA. The instructor, Alan Yue, did a great job leading the course. He took a very dry topic and made it interesting and demonstrated the importance of the regulations relative to our business. I would recommend the ecfirst course to anyone, and most especially would recommend Alan as the instructor!”
Marie Simonelli, Senior Privacy Analyst

Gustav G.L. Cruickshank (Dr.)
National Health Insurance Authority

“I really enjoyed the class. I’ve been reading HIPAA regulation on and off for some years now, but felt rather bored and lost at times on how to approach understanding such a dauntingly large and somewhat nebulous federal regulation. The HIPAA Academy‟s Certified HIPAA Professional (CHP) class encapsulated everything into a well organized and structured logic that I could understand and absorb much more easily and quickly.”
Patrick So, CISA
IT Compliance
Kaiser Permanente

“Lorna is so Pro HIPAA – she makes us all want to go back to work to share & implement HIPAA requirements. As a clinical professional, the knowledge this course provided me was amazing. The manual & reference cards are invaluable tools to have handy when implementing HIPAA and needing as a reference. I would recommend this course to all clinical and non-clinical healthcare workers.”
Dana McGrath

“Alan really helped me understand the core elements and details. I will be recommending ecfirst and this course to others.”
Stuart Foster

“ecfirst‟s Certified HIPAA Professional program did a great job of taking a large body of law and condensing it down to cover the aspects of the security and privacy rules that most directly impact companies that work with PHI. After taking the classes I feel confident about making HIPAA-related policy decisions that will keep our organization in compliance and ready for an audit.”
Mark Adams
LeonardoMD, Inc.

“Instructor was awesome! He knew his stuff and was able to help us put the regulations into context relative to our specific issues to the regulations. I’d highly recommend him as an instructor. The only negative I had was that it would have been helpful to have the book prior to the class. This way, we could have been more prepared to ask questions on specific items and also to have more time for on-site exam preparation.”
Students from OneBeacon Insurance Co.

“First, Lorna is an outstanding instructor. She did an excellent job of keeping the class focused especially with all the material that needed to be covered. Several years ago in the original HIPAA Privacy and Security programs, I was responsible for the security assessment for the enterprise network (WAN). Learned a lot back then. It was great to see what’s happening in the evolution of HIPAA even as we speak. Had a great time, learned a lot. Best of luck to all you folks at ecfirst.”

“My experience with the HIPAA Academy™, specifically ecfirst was by far the least painful training experience in my 11 years in the industry. HIPAA as it applies to Business Associates has always been a gray area for me. As a vendor, being compliant in a client’s eyes is of the upmost importance and this course really gave me some insight to be able to speak intelligently about this area.”
Chuck Edwards
Health check Incorporated

“The CHP course was a lot to take in at once, but the instructor’s (Lorna Wagoner) anecdotes based on her extensive and relative field experience and her course delivery made the compliance material and the rather prosaic nature of the HIPAA Rule itself frighteningly enjoyable! I learned a lot!”

Also, I wanted to let you know that I was in a meeting on Monday and the owner of my company was talking about NPIs vs. UPINs. I was able to speak to the group on the difference and how the NPIs are assigned. Wow, did I take a lot out of your training!”

The dedication and passion that your team presented on a daily basis for the past five months has been outstanding. We were able to surpass our project goal by 6 percent and maintain our projected budget! This is a direct reflection of the flexibility of both your Management team and the on-site HIPAA Consultants performing the training.

When our organization scoped out this project to train up to 10,000 DHS employees on HIPAA Privacy we knew we would have to partner with a company that has proven their abilities at a national level. We were very pleased to learn that you had an interest in working closely with us to ensure our projects‟ success. The HIPAA Academy‟s past experiences, team members and client success‟ made you the best choice for our project. You were able to prove to us the project plan you put on paper was able to be implemented and successfully achieved.

Every HIPAA Academy™ instructor delivered the training with enthusiasm and customized it to include specific examples from various organizations within the State of Oregon. The project itself was managed closely, transparently and responsibly from the Project Manager and her supporting team in the HIPAA Academy™ back office. All feedback was very quickly integrated in subsequent sessions to make every training session the best it possibly could be.

To date this is the largest departmental training project we have attempted. We owe a great deal of its success to the team at HIPAA Academy™. I hope we have the opportunity to work together in the near future. We have and will continue to refer your services to all parties that are looking for HIPAA compliance services.”

“The task of bringing my client to HIPAA compliance was dumped in my lap. As a consultant more on the management side of the healthcare industry, I felt overwhelmed when given the responsibility. Being only slightly familiar with the medical transactions, codes and procedure, I thought it impossible to even grasp HIPAA from a class. Boy was I wrong! I now am aware and feel competent in my knowledge of the scope of HIPAA, and I am convinced that it will be evident in my report/briefs to my clients. Thank you HIPAA Academy™!”
