Perils of Ignoring the Educational Landscape
In the effort to educate and train employees on compliance with HIPAA Privacy, Security and documentation, there are just so many moving parts. Speaking from experience, it is not all that uncommon to train a group of new-hires only to learn that some new regulations have been passed on a state or federal level and now we need to round everyone back up and complete another training session.
With that said, now we are entering into the realm of additional lost production time, additional personal hours, and quite possibly a roomful of people who aren’t excited to have another round of compliance training.
Exploring the Benefits of Online Compliance Training
Knowing this pressure point that employers who need to offer Health care compliance training face regularly, we would like to expound the advantages that employers can offer through online training. Let’s explore the benefits of online healthcare compliance training.
TimeAre you in a busy dental practice and a patient cancelled short notice or didn’t show at all? Well, training is available without loss of personal hours.
MoneyContinuing education is quite expensive nowadays. Not only that but closing the office for an entire day is an enormous expense.
ProductivityPiggybacking on money, don’t close the office to train, team members can train during their downtime whenever that may be.

Can you see clearly now?
Now that we have taken a moment to outline the advantages to online learning in the healthcare compliance space, it is obvious to see which path forward thinking practitioners are taking.
With that said, HIPAA compliance can become even more challenging when rules seemingly change overnight.
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR they handle HIPAA) has released information regarding several changes in legislation coming sometime in 2023 related to Rights of Access for patients’ private health information.
