“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!”

“I found the class to be very informative and the information was presented in a logical manner that tied key elements together.
The pace of the class was appropriate for both “seasoned” individuals and those who are relatively new to the information.
The presenter was very knowledgeable and presented information in a logical manner that reinforced learning.
I would recommend the class to anyone wanting to learn more about the HIPAA and the recent changes to the Standards as
well as to those who are preparing to take the HIPAA certification exam.”

“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 CHP class
encapsulated everything into a well organized and structured logic that I can understand and absorb much more easily and quickly.”

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

  • Understand why HIPAA requirements will cause significant changes in policies, procedures and processes within the organization in the handling of patient records.
  • Examine how implementing HIPAA will affect the way healthcare entities organize and staff to achieve and monitor compliance with patient privacy/confidentiality needs.
  • Step through qualifications and positioning strategies for a Privacy Officer and requirements for a Information Security Officer.
  • 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.
  • 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.
