Tulsa, Okla. (PRWEB) December 5, 2007
Evolve e-Learning Solutions, an online learning management system provider, has introduced new libraries of basic and role-specific HIPAA training courses for health care providers and other organizations that work with protected health information. The courses aim at teaching clinics, hospitals, insurance providers and business associates the particulars of HIPAA Privacy & Security regulations so they can avoid non-compliance penalties and fines.
"This is something we're excited to be providing to our customers in the health care industry," said Preston Stiner, president of Evolve e-Learning Solutions (http://www.evolveelearning.com). "Employee training is vital to running a smooth business and complying with multiple government privacy and safety regulations. With the addition of these new HIPAA training course libraries, we can assist health care providers and others in offering that."
Evolve also offers online training courses for OSHA, Joint Commission and EEO compliance. Stiner hopes these prior offerings can be combined with the HIPAA training courses to present health care clinics, ASCs, SNFs, hospitals and other health care providers with a complete training solution.
"One of the biggest issues in the health care industry is making sure employees know the ins and outs of all the different regulations," Stiner said. "Health care organizations need to provide this critical compliance training to their employees at the lowest cost. The HIPAA training courses delivered on our hosted online learning management system allow them to do that, ensuring employees comply with the regulations and avoid costly fines and penalties."
With HIPAA, for example, there are major civil penalties associated with non-compliance. If employees make a mistake, it's $100 per violation, up to $25,000 per person per year for each violated requirement or prohibition.
An online learning management system works to eliminate the costly problem of a lack of employee education. With an LMS and online training courses, employees can learn at their own pace and take the required courses when it best fits in their schedule, rather than having to drastically adjust their work to fit in a sit-down class.
With an online learning management system, employers also get automated results, which make it easier to show that they have complied with employee training regulations.
"Evolve also has products that allows you to turn PowerPoint presentations into online training courses that are delivered on our learning management system, and include a quiz at the end so you can measure employee learning retention," Stiner said. "This way you get a learning management solution that is completely tailored to what you and your organization needs."
