In Texas, HIPAA and House Bill 300 have teeth. But why should you believe us?
- Ask the Lufkin woman who received 5 years’ probation for stealing patient information
- Talk to the former Longview hospital employee who was sentenced to 18 months in prison for wrongful disclosure of patient PHI
- Or speak with the Grapevine cardiology employee who faced a year in prison and a $50,000 fine for unauthorized disclosure of a single patient’s health information
Smart Training’s new HB300 2018 training module is recommended training for all healthcare workers across Texas. Building on Smart Training’s market-leading HB300 module which premiered in late 2012, the 2018 version adds crucial data breach avoidance strategies.
HB300 has been law in Texas for nearly 6 years, but many practices are still blithely unaware of the risks employees take in running afoul of patient privacy laws. Widely regarded as the toughest patient privacy law in the United States, HB300 mandates severe penalties for HIPAA violations … and those penalties are clearly being enforced.
When patients can make life truly miserable for everyone in your office merely by reporting careless privacy practices to the Texas Attorney General, it just makes sense to ensure that your practice is safeguarded against HIPAA violations.
The Smart Training HB300 2018 module debuts May 28. Next week, we’ll give you additional details on the module content and tell you how your office can receive a substantial discount when you assign this vital training to employees.
