HIPAA Certification Training Class: Certified HIPAA Professional (CHP)

A Two-Day Instructor-Led HIPAA Training Program

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.

Training Class 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 boot camp 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 Chief Privacy Officer and requirements for a Chief 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.

Prerequisite Requirements

There is no prerequisite for this course. CHP is level 1 of HIPAA Certification. No other educational qualifications required.

Target Audience

The focus of the program is to better understand the implications of HIPAA legislation and identify critical compliance requirements for your business. The program is designed to focus on specific aspects of the HIPAA Administrative Simplification Title. It addresses HIPAA requirements in the areas of Transactions, Privacy and Security. It is strongly recommended that all key members of the enterprise HIPAA team attend this two-day boot camp so that a common body of HIPAA knowledge may be established. This will provide the base line to launch HIPAA implementation initiatives. The complete two-day Certified HIPAA Professional training class program is ideal for Healthcare Executives, Senior Clinicians, Chief Information Officers, Lawyers, Compliance Officers, Privacy and Security Officials, Quality Assurance and Risk Managers, Insurance Executives, Physicians and Office Managers, Pharmaceutical Company Executives, and Clinical Trial Organization Professionals.

“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 (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.
