Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 03, 2014
Poms & Associates (http://www.pomsassoc.com) announces they will offer Total HIPAA Compliance’s (http://www.totalHIPAA.com) HIPAA Training 2.0 for Employers. Their clients, who offer health benefits to their employees, must provide HIPAA training as part of the compliance process required by Health and Human Services (HHS).
Making this online training available is consistent with Poms & Associates’ mission to serve not only as an insurance broker but also as an educator for its more than 8,000 clients. Poms & Associates, with 7 offices in California, Colorado, New Mexico and Washington, has taken a leadership role by sponsoring a webinar for its clients outlining the HIPAA responsibilities of employers who offer a health plan. The free webinar can be viewed at https://www.totalhipaa.com/register-free-hipaa-webinar-employers/.
“Poms & Associates’ clients have a greater peace of mind knowing that the services provided by Total HIPAA Compliance and vetted by Poms will help them meet their HIPAA compliance training requirements” – Karen Gracey, Director of Client Services – Northern California.
Total HIPAA Compliance’s training includes modules for leaders who must implement HIPAA compliance as well as workforce modules for employees who must follow the procedures. Poms & Associates’ legal staff can help clients complete the compliance documentation, which includes establishing Policies and Procedures, conducting a Risk Assessment, and sending Notice of Privacy Practices to employees.
“Health and Human Services is auditing employers and levying major fines in excess of $1M per violation for non-compliance with HIPAA. Total HIPAA [Compliance]’s training can help prepare employers so HIPAA violations are less likely,” commented Jan Karn, President of Total HIPAA Compliance.
