Full course description
This training, designed specifically for OVPIT, is intended for OVPIT managers and employees who are responsible for systems or services that create, receive, maintain, or transmit electronic protected health information (ePHI), individually identifiable patient data protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). It fulfills part of the annual HIPAA training requirement set by the HIPAA Security Rule and IU policy. To complete the OVPIT HIPAA training requirements, two additional courses are required. Please see the KB article https://kb.iu.edu/d/abmg for further instructions on how to access those courses.
This training will explain:
- why HIPAA is relevant for OVPIT,
- the approach OVPIT uses to satisfy HIPAA requirements,
- what the required, addressable, and recommended safeguards are for OVPIT,
- what to do to get systems approved for ePHI.
