There are two things that set this course apart: 1, It's taught in plain language by a mental health professional. Katie Malinski walks through the requirements with realism and a sense of humor. 2, The course includes a detailed handout with sample forms and checklists you can use in your process of HIPAA compliance.
This course reviews HIPAA requirements in plain language for mental health professionals, with an emphasis on those in private practice. Topics include Key Definitions, Risk Assessment, the Compliance File, and more. The course goes step by step through the process of becoming compliant.
