HIPAA Cartoon - TeachPrivacy HIPAA Training

HIPAA is famously impenetrable, with so many special terms and definitions.  I wrote this cartoon to capture the wonderful world of HIPAA jargon, which I hope fellow lovers of HIPAA can appreciate.

AHIMA LogoFor those who want an introduction to HIPAA and how the Privacy Rule and the Security Rule work, I produced a series of courses on HIPAA for the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). Each course is approximately 1 hour long.  The courses are:

• HIPAA Privacy: The Pillars of a Privacy Program
• HIPAA Privacy: Rights and Responsibilities
• HIPAA Security: Safeguarding PHI

They are available through AHIMA, but you can preview them on my site here.

HIPAA Courses - AHIMAThese AHIMA HIPAA courses are not for the entire workforce — the courses are for personnel who focus on HIPAA compliance and need to understand the basics of how HIPAA works.  My HIPAA training for the workforce is shorter as well as more basic and general.

I have another HIPAA cartoon here.
