Certified HIPAA Professional (CHP)

HIPAA Training for Privacy: Certified HIPAA Professional™ (CHP™) Program

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is about insurance portability, fraud, and administrative simplification. In this HIPAA training course we examine basics of the Administrative Simplification portion of the HIPAA legislation. We examine HIPAA Transactions and Code Sets, Identifiers, Privacy and Security. It is this provision of the HIPAA regulation that is the watershed legislation for healthcare information systems. This HIPAA provision is resulting in substantial changes in business development processes, policies and procedures for all covered entities – providers (hospitals, laboratories and pharmacies) clearinghouses and payers.
