New York, NY (PRWEB) July 14, 2008
Kroll Fraud Solutions today launched "Handling Sensitive Patient Information in the Healthcare Workplace," an eLearning data security course for healthcare professionals.
From custodians and receptionists to nurses and doctors--every member of a healthcare organization deals with highly sensitive patient information. And, with identity theft on the rise nationwide, it's critical that these individuals remain aware of the threat to sensitive identity elements like Social Security number and date of birth that co-exist with Personal Health Information (PHI), and methods for safeguarding all personal information - even when it is not health-related. This one-hour course delivers best practice training for managing sensitive patient information and empowers healthcare professionals to take the personal steps necessary to reduce the risk of data breaches at their organizations.
Participants will specifically learn:
- How patient data breaches occur
- How patients and healthcare organizations are affected
- How to play a role in prevention
