HIPAA implementation for human resources

It is not commonly known that a Covered Entity or its Business Associate have to comply with HIPAA regulations that relate to their organization’s human resources function. While HIPAA requirements for departments that deal with IT security and risk management are commonly known; HIPAA for the human resources department is also important.

HIPAA lays down a number of requirements that the HR department has to perform. HIPAA has laid down laws and requirements that they must meet. They should be aware of what they can and cannot do with employee health records.

A complete change in implementation

HIPAA now empowers individuals to sue under state laws of negligence for HIPAA violations. With the passage of Omnibus; the HIPAA scenario has changed for good. There has been a sea change into what was once a rarely enforced law. A Covered Entity or its Business Associate needs to be fully aware of the happenings in their human resources department and whether they are enforcing the laws and requirements from HIPAA if they have to protect their practice or business

The cost of laxity in enforcement of laws and requirements pertaining to the organization’s human resources is obvious. Of late, there has been a huge increase in the liability for remedies, resulting in high legal costs.

Learn how HIPAA concerns HR

It is to help Covered Entities and their Business Associates avoid these situations that MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for the healthcare industry, is organizing a learning session. At this 90-minute session, which has been approved for 1.5 general credit from the Nevada Board of Continuing Legal Education, Brian Tuttle, a senior health IT professional who has 15 years of experience in health IT, will be the speaker.
