HIPAA training: Best practices for better success

Briefings on HIPAA, February 1, 2008

When the HIPAA privacy rule became effective in early 2003, it provided the first measure of federal privacy protection for PHI. The rule-both landmark and monumental-created a training nightmare for healthcare providers. Four years later, managers in all types of healthcare settings still haven't developed surefire strategies to teach staff members about the rule's intricacies. The most effective solution may be for managers to discuss what works and what doesn't with peers at other facilities, and use that information to develop a plan of action that's effective and appropriate for their staff.
