HIPAA Rule Special Training Program required beginning Aug. 5

The UNC Health Care Privacy Office, in conjunction with each UNC Health Care entity (Chatham Hospital, High Point Regional, Rex Healthcare, etc.), has developed a Final HIPAA Rule Special Training Program. The Program will go-live Aug. 5, in the Learning Management System (LMS).

Starting on Monday, Aug. 5, each employee will be required to log onto LMS and complete a training program to learn more about the recent changes in the HIPAA Rules. The changes take effect on Sept. 23, and we expect all employees to complete this brief training program no later than Sept. 15.

Please take a few minutes between Aug. 5 and Sept. 15, 2013, to access LMS and complete the “Final HIPAA Rule Special Training” module. If you have any questions about this or any other Privacy or Information Security Policy please talk to your supervisor or contact the UNC Health Care Compliance Office at 919-966-9659.
