Slide content:Physician and Staff Training Practices/organizations must Designate a privacy Officer Develop policies and procedures Provide privacy training to workforce Develop a system of sanctions for employees who violate privacy laws 18
Slide notes:Another aspect of the HIPAA privacy regulations is physician and staff training, which has been a substantial expense to health care organizations. The regulation states that practices and organizations must designate a privacy officer, develop policies and procedures, provide privacy training to the workforce, and develop a system of sanctions for employees who violate the privacy law. Theres sometimes frustration when individuals have to complete HIPAA training at each and every organization they are associated with. For example, a researcher would have to complete similar HIPAA training at all of the institutions that he or she collaborates with, resulting in a lot of repetition. 18
