Course Description

This course provides a readable and practical overview of the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). It is for psychotherapists and mental health workers in private practice, small group practices, and agencies. The course focuses on key principles of HIPAA, along with details that you need to apply now. For example, it explains how the HIPAA principle of "scalability" can help you determine how to adopt HIPAA practices that fit your situation. You will also know what questions to ask and where to turn as additional issues arise in the course of your work.

When providers first learn about HIPAA, they may feel overwhelmed. However, the law was intended to be scalable, that is, the expectations take into account the size of the practice or organization. Thus, the practitioner should not be bowled over by materials and services created for corporate insurers and hospitals. Instead, we focus on the principles and they way they apply to smaller practices. That is what this course provides.
