HIPAA training tip: Be a resource for your workforce

Email This Post Print This Post

Editor’s note: This is the fifth in a series of tips to help keep your staff HIPAA compliant.

The smartest route to compliance is for staff to know where to get the information they need, says Brandon Ho, CIPP, HIPAA compliance specialist for the Pacific Regional Medical Command based at Tripler Medical Center in Honolulu. Ho makes sure staff members know he is available to answer their questions about everything, from possible breaches to best practices to prevent HIPAA violations.

As compliance officer, Ho provides in-service training, classroom sessions, and continuing education. He says simple methods, such as sending weekly HIPAA tips via e-mail or walking through work areas to look for problems, can also increase the effectiveness of training.
