Training Full Description

Training Title:
HIPAA: for Substance Use Disorder Providers v.4

Clock Hours: 1

After completing this course, participants should be able to: • Identify the reasons why HIPAA was enacted. • Know consumers’ rights under HIPAA. • Identify various examples of protected health information. • Know the requirements and safeguards for working with protected health information. • Understand requirements of 42 CFR Part 2 that impact your practice. • Apply HIPAA rules appropriately (in various situations) to ensure a high level of care and respect for consumers. • Understand HIPAA compliance and the penalties for not complying, as mandated by law.

This course presents key information, highlighting Title II of the HIPAA law. The training incorporates updates to HIPAA required by additional legislation since 1996. This course is targeted to substance use disorder providers who are looking to gain an understanding of HIPAA and how this law relates to them either personally or how they must comply with it in their day-to-day operations. As a substance use disorder provider, you are also subject to Title 42 Code of Federal Regulations Part 2 (42 CFR Part 2) titled Confidentiality of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Patient Records. This imposes some requirements beyond those of HIPAA. You should follow the most restrictive requirements for all rules and regulations when rules or regulations have different requirements. The goal of this course is to help those with exposure to protected health information (PHI) increase their awareness and knowledge of individual rights and responsibilities under HIPAA and to further improve the safe-guarding of health information. Keywords: HIPAA, privacy, compliance, Protected Health Information, substance use disorder, 42 CFR Part 2
