HIPAA Training

HIPAA Training


This short HIPAA training course, Snooping (~4.5 mins), discusses when it is proper and improper to look at PHI. The course explains that just because a person has access to medical records does not entitle that person to examine PHI not relevant to that person’s job.  The course discusses snooping into the PHI of celebrities, politicians, and famous people as well as snooping into the PHI of friends, co-workers, and family members.

The video uses interesting visuals and real life case examples to bring the course material alive and keep trainees engaged.

After the video, there are 4 quiz questions that test on and reinforce lessons in the video.

Learning objectives:

  • Recognize when it is appropriate to look at PHI and when it isn’t
  • Understand that snooping out of curiosity is a HIPAA violation with serious potential consequences
  • Realize that it is improper to look at the PHI of friends, co-workers, or family members unless necessary for one’s job
  • Learn that snooping is wrong not just when done out of curiosity but also when done out of concern for another person

    About TeachPrivacy and Our Training Philosophy

    Daniel Solove Privacy Awareness Training TeachPrivacy was founded by Professor Daniel J. Solove, the leading expert on privacy and data security law. He is deeply involved in the creation of all training programs because he believes that training works best when made by subject-matter experts and by people with extensive teaching experience.

    According to Professor Solove: “Great training isn’t about slickness or tricks. It is about teaching. The goal is to make people understand, care, and remember. Great training is made with genuine passion – to make people love training, it must be made with love. Excellent substance is essential. The material must be explained clearly, understandably, and concretely. The content must be short and to the point – and it must be engaging. Slickness and gimmicks can’t compensate for lackluster substance.”

    TeachPrivacy provides privacy awareness training, information security awareness training, phishing training, HIPAA training, FERPA training, PCI training, as well as training on many other privacy and security topics.

    Professor Solove is a law professor at George Washington University Law School.
