Pay-per-view: Spice up your privacy and security training sessions

Compliance Monitor, August 22, 2007

When Glennda Gore, executive director of corporate compliance for McAlester (OK) Regional Health Center, was working to develop an additional training session about HIPAA for her hospital's staff members, she faced a common dilemma. She was already giving orientation sessions every two weeks for new employees, and veteran staff members took an online refresher course every year. She needed a new way to draw employees to her message about privacy and security.

In the past, I've done it the old way, where I just quoted from our policy. But this year I thought, 'It's been four years of that,' " says Gore. "What am I going to tell you that you don't already know?" This question served as the title of her PowerPoint presentation.

It also inspired her to rework her old presentations with a focus on real-life breaches in the news and at the hospital itself. She used those examples to illustrate common compliance problems and start a discussion about how staff members can prevent problems.
