Morf Media Inc., developer of Morf Playbook™ talent development, skill-building and compliance training platform for use on mobile devices and PCs, today launched its latest online course, 2016 HIPAA Best Practices. Updated with latest guidance on National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Information and on cybersecurity best practices, the interactive course provides a clear, effective approach to correcting and preventing mistakes and leaks in confidential medical information.

Protect Patient Privacy, Comply with Regulations, Improve Efficiency

“HIPAA compliance is integral to any healthcare affiliated organization,” said Angela Bazigos, healthcare IT security expert and chief compliance officer at Morf Media Inc. “The 2016 HIPAA Best Practices course on Morf Playbook offers fast, focused and engaging guidance with the latest updates on avoiding phishing attacks and a section for those impacted by NICS. Now healthcare professionals have a simpler, more cost-effective way to do their training to implement all of the latest guidelines regarding patient records and confidentiality.”

The 2016 HIPAA Best Practices course shows healthcare providers how to lower the risk of regulatory action through up to date HIPAA compliance training. Recent legislation, specifically expectations regarding electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) and Electronic Health Records (EHRs), implemented stricter privacy regulations when storing and transferring patient information. Complete training in the details of these new guidelines helps companies avoid steep fees and legal issues.

The 2016 HIPAA Best Practices course is designed to help meet multiple agency requirements around the world, such as Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Civil Rights (OCR), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) requirements. It includes a comprehensive overview of the Act, including the recent January 4, 2016 updates on NICS.*

“2016 HIPAA Best Practices will help clear any ambiguity or misinterpretation in any area of HIPAA or HITECH and will equip the participant with the latest developments,” added Bazigos. “Plus taking the quizzes and exams on Morf Playbook allows you to train anytime on your mobile device, track your training and earn a certificate of completion for continuing education credit.”

  • Note: “HIPAA Certified” is not the same as “HIPAA compliant”. No third party or hosting provider can make your organization HIPAA compliant. There is also no certification program recognized by the federal governing body of the HIPAA standard, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Office of Civil Rights (OCR)

On Jan. 4, 2016 HHS released a final rule (federalregister.gov) that modifies the existing HIPAA Privacy Rule to clarify that it is not a privacy violation to report certain information to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
Importantly, the rule does not apply to most health care professionals and does not allow diagnostic, clinical or other mental health treatment information to be reported.
