Do You Need to Build a Privacy Awareness Training Plan in your Healthcare Practice?
A practical privacy awareness training plan will save time for clinic managers and privacy officers.
Employees and healthcare providers who keep privacy and security top of mind will contribute to increased patient satisfaction, improve privacy compliance, and reduce privacy and security incidents in your practice.
Privacy awareness training is more than a checklist when new employees are hired.
As an employer and health care provider, you are responsible to provide training to all your employees about privacy awareness.
Your privacy officer should have direct involvement in the planning and monitoring of the privacy awareness training. The privacy officer may also:
- Facilitate training opportunities
- Develop / contribute to policies and procedures
- Monitor for compliance
- Provide instructions
- Implement specific projects
If you don’t provide the training – and if your employees don’t understand the policies – and there is a privacy breach, then the healthcare provider is more likely to be held accountable under the legislation and face penalties including fines and even prison!
Protect your organization and your patients. Equip your staff with the information they need to confidently and correctly handle personal health information. Healthcare businesses who want employee and supervisor level privacy awareness training to support key policies, procedures and risk management programs need a privacy awareness training program.
Quickly and Easily Build Your Privacy Awareness Training Plan For the Whole Year!
Effective training for adult learners suggest that we must re-enforce key concepts at least 4 times a year. This applies to privacy awareness topics, too.
Start your privacy awareness training at orientation and on-boarding of ALL of your team members, including healthcare providers.
Then, re-enforce the key concepts throughout the year with work aids, posters, a ‘training minute' at regular staff meetings or team huddles, and coaching during the work day.
