Libman Education Releases Line of HIPAA Privacy & Security Courses

“Comprehensive HIPAA compliant privacy and security workforce training that meets all applicable requirements”

BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTSDecember 24, 2019 – Libman Education now offers multiple options for HIPAA Privacy and Security training, with four new courses authored by Kelly McLendon, RHIA, CHPS, a well known speaker, author, and HIPAA expert.

“These courses represent comprehensive HIPAA compliant privacy and security workforce training that meet all applicable requirements,” said McLendon, who developed the courses from material drawn from over 40 years of professional practice.

He adds, “Unlike many other HIPAA training courses, these courses are tailored specially for Covered Entities or Business Associates and take into account the requirements of healthcare organizations from large to small. They focus on the information that truly is needed by workforce members in order to follow and apply HIPAA privacy and security properly.”

Courses include:

  • HIPAA Privacy & Security Training (for non-clinical workforce members of a healthcare provider with no prior HIPAA Privacy and Security training)
  • HIPAA Privacy and Security TrainingRefresher (addresses 2018 updates in OCR guidance including ransomware, cloud computing, patient access, disclosing to loved ones and other current topics)
  • HIPAA Privacy & Security TrainingBusiness Associates (No Patient Rights) (for business associates and subcontractors that do not process “patient rights” requests such as disclosures and amendments)
  • HIPAA Privacy & Security Training Business Associates (with Patient Rights) (for business associates and subcontractors that process “patient rights” requests such as disclosures and amendments)

Kelly plans to introduce new courses in early 2020. For more about HIPAA Privacy & Security training offered by Libman Education, visit https://libmaneducation.com/product-category/specialties/hipaa-specialities
