    New and improved HIPAA Privacy and Security Awareness Training, which all employees who have contact with protected health information (PHI) are required to complete by February 15, 2018, will be available through ULearn beginning Wednesday, December 13.

    This training, which is required for the University to remain in compliance with the HIPAA Privacy Rule (45 CFR 164.530(b)), was created specifically for the Miller School of Medicine and its health care enterprise, with guidance from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It was cross-referenced with multiple peer institutions, including academic health centers and other hospitals across the nation to ensure relevant content.

    The federally mandated regulations require implementation of administrative, technical and physical safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI and protect it against any reasonably anticipated threats or hazards, and/or unauthorized uses or disclosures. A critical part of the safeguarding process is making sure that all workforce members are knowledgeable about HIPAA, Privacy and Security compliance and receive training.

    The Office of Privacy & Data Security devoted countless hours to improving the training module to ensure that it is convenient and user-friendly while upholding all regulations and University policy. All essential points, including quiz questions, are included in an efficient module that can be completed, on average, in 25 minutes. As a result, the training is significantly less time-consuming than past modules, and the Office of Privacy & Security hopes, useful and informative.

    The training will be available via ULearn and all workforce members who have contact with PHI are required to complete it by February 15, 2018. Look for further instructions, which will be sent via email.
