What is HIPAA employee training?

A HIPAA training program ensures that all staff that are responsible for storing, handling, accessing, or sharing PHI understand the major provisions of HIPAA legislation, including requirements laid out in the Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules 

Employees should be taught how to follow the organization’s privacy and security policies during their onboarding process and on a regular basis. Data security and privacy training for employees is considered an administrative safeguard under the HIPAA Security Rule.
