Course description

Hipaa and Staff Terminations: Managing Access to Prevent Breaches

Learn the steps and best practices when terminating an employee to avoid data breaches.

HIPAA demands that health care employers implement robust data privacy protocols and systems. Although nearly all health care employers invest significant time and money training employees on these systems, the importance of data privacy, and the risk of a data breach, they do not have a comprehensive offboarding plan in place to protect against unauthorized access by terminated employees. The consequences of failing to control and manage terminated employees access can be wideranging, including civil or criminal liability or reputational damage. This course will help health care employers understand how to appropriately prepare for employee terminations to limit the risk of a HIPAA data breach. Knowing the risks and taking preventative and proactive actions to protect Protected Health Information will protect the employer, employees, and those they serve. This material is critical for employers to avoid civil and criminal penalties as well as to stay off the Office for Civil Rights Compliances Wall Of Shame.
