Is HIPAA Training Required? Yes

Warning: This section contains legal jargon.

The HIPAA Laws make it clear that healthcare workers must have documented training. The wording is very lawyerly, but here are the two sections of the law that say you must get training and it must be documented. "Covered entity" means the healthcare company.
45 CFR § 164.308 - Administrative safeguards (a)(5)(i) Standard: Security awareness and training.  Implement a security awareness and training program for all members of its workforce (including management).
45 CFR § 164.530 - Administrative requirements (b)(1) Standard: Training. A covered entity must train all members of its workforce on the policies and procedures with respect to protected health information required by this subpart and subpart D of this part, as necessary and appropriate for the members of the workforce to carry out their functions within the covered entity... (ii) A covered entity must document that the training as described in paragraph (b)(2)(i) of this section has been provided, as required by paragraph (j) of this section.
Clinic Nerds interpret the above legal quotes to mean that every employee of a healthcare company must:
  • Take a basic HIPAA course
  • Have documented proof of having completed the course
Check with your employer about reimbursement for the cost of the course.
Notes on the legal jargon: The place where the HIPAA rules are written is the CFR or Code of Federal Regulations. "45 C.F.R. § 164.308" roughly translates as "chapter 45, section 164, paragraph 308 ..." This unusual symbol § is named the "double S" symbol and means "section."
