The Privacy and Security Rules require formal education and training of the workforce to ensure ongoing accountability for privacy and security of PHI. A covered entity must train all members of its workforce on the policies and procedures with respect to PHI. This training must be done yearly and must be documented by the covered entity.
All employees are required to complete HIPAA training through Cornerstone. The link to Cornerstone can be found under the employee tab in URSA. The HIPAA training is located in Cornerstone under Learning and Training and Learning Center.
If you are a Supervisor and would like in person training, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule training.
If you currently have a designated HIPAA trainer in your office and you wish to complete the Self Audit, you may do so. This must be completed and submitted to our office yearly for review. In addition, all employees are required to sign a Confidentiality Statement each year.
