WHY DO LAW FIRMS NEED TRAINING FOR HEALTH INFORMATION?

IT'S THE LAW IN TEXAS:

If you and your staff handle any type of health, medical, or related billing information (protected health information or PHI) during the course of business, Texas law requires you receive training to secure this data. The Texas Medical Records Privacy Act, also known as "Texas House Bill 300", extends federal HIPAA training requirements to all organizations that handle PHI, not just those in the medical industry.   Texas Medical Records Privacy Act - Texas Health and Safety Code Sec. 181.001

THE AUTHORITIES AND INDUSTRY ARE CLEAR ON THE SUBJECT:

The Texas Attorney General maintains that the Texas Medical Privacy Act applies to "any individual, business, or organization that obtains, stores, or possesses PHI as well as their agents, employees and contractors if they create, receive, obtain, use or transmit PHI"... AND that "businesses and organizations must comply with...mandatory training for employees regarding PHI".   Website of the Texas Attorney General - State and Federal Health Privacy Laws

In an article that appeared in the Texas Bar Journal, attorneys explained “…the Texas Medical Records Privacy Act, Health and Safety Code §181.001…provides even greater regulation than federal law. The Texas law applies to all attorneys who come into possession of patient records and requires the exercise of much more care—and certainly a great deal more care than Texas litigators historically exercised under the Texas Rules of Evidence and Texas Rules of Civil Procedure.”   HIPAA and Medical Records Privacy – A Survival Guide for Texas Attorneys. Texas Bar Journal, Vol. 78, No. 7.


ACHIEVE COMPLIANCE WITH COURSES DESIGNED FOR LAW FIRMS

Attorneys get double the return on their investment with compliance and CLE credit at the same time. Our course is accredited by the State Bar of Texas and provides 1 hour of "Ethics" CLE for attorneys.

Achieve compliance with training courses that provide up-to-date information for legal professionals. Generic HIPAA training designed for "business associates" does not meet Texas HB 300 requirements. In addition to being "role based", our courses review the legal requirements (State and Federal) for handling "Protected Health Information" (PHI), explain individual employee obligations including the penalties for non-compliance, and outline the best practices necessary to ensure the confidentiality of this data in detail.
