At IU, where can I find information about HIPAA compliance training?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) established rules protecting the privacy and security of individually identifiable health information. The HIPAA Privacy Rule and Security Rule set national standards requiring organizations and individuals to implement certain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of protected health information (PHI).

To help ensure compliance with these rules, Indiana University requires annual HIPAA compliance training for all faculty, staff, residents, students, volunteers, and contracted third parties who have access to PHI.

Under IU's HIPAA Privacy & Security Compliance Plan, each IU HIPAA Affected Area is responsible for ensuring that its workforce meets the annual training requirement. The university's HIPAA Privacy and Security Officers coordinate and implement the trainings, and monitor compliance.

For information about HIPAA compliance training options at IU, see the HIPAA Training and Education page on the University Compliance website. If you have questions about HIPAA compliance training, contact IU's HIPAA Privacy Officer or HIPAA Security Officer.
