  4. Credit given for attendance at HIPAA training offered by healthcare affiliates

    If you have obtained HIPAA training through one of the healthcare affiliates such as IU Health, Wishard or Roudebush Veterans Administration Medical Center, this will meet your annual requirement. It is your responsibility to provide documentation of completion of this training to your HIPAA Liaison for tracking purposes.

    If you have attended HIPAA training conducted for your unit by a qualified individual during the previous year, this can be counted towards the annual HIPAA training requirement. Each unit’s HIPAA Liaison should maintain the appropriate documentation of all attendees.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      If you are unsure who the HIPAA Liaison for your unit is, please reference the List of Liaisons for Identified HIPAA Affected Areas.
