Having your personal information exposed is a worrying thought, right? Things like identity theft and fraud are real possibilities. In healthcare, the personal information held for patients is very sensitive. But to successfully treat patients, health information will likely need to be shared with various clinicians and healthcare workers. That means it has the potential to be easily exposed. And that creates a big problem: How do you keep patient data safe?

Thanks to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), there are rules and regulations to make sure personal information doesn’t get exposed. Handling “Protected Health Information,” or PHI, correctly is a legal duty for all healthcare workers. And it carries pretty big penalties if you get it wrong. So, it’s vital that everyone understands what must be protected and how. This course will help.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Identify what information is classed as PHI
• Describe why protecting this information is important
• Recognize the ways in which information can be protected

Why take this course?

In healthcare, looking after people’s information is as important as looking after people, and it’s everybody’s responsibility. This course is ideal for all healthcare workers. It’ll examine Protected Health Information and why it’s important to handle it correctly. And, by taking this course, you’ll be able to make sure you’re doing all you can to protect it.
