Press Release – 8/27/11
HIPAA Exams to provide a suite of educational services for healthcare providers and their business associates along with extending additional educational services for vendor credentialing such as medical product suppliers, medical product manufacturers, manufacturer sales reps, distributors, medical sales reps and service providers. The partnership will offer low cost, quality healthcare training to meet national standards for HIPAA Compliancy. These online training programs include HIPAA Security, HIPAA Awareness (privacy), HIPAA training page and ARRA and HITECH Act of 2009–2010. It offers many training and certification courses, and has recently updated the courses related to HITECH and ARRA. Additional specialized JCAHO and OSHA educational courses are available with expectations of continuously adding new training.
The HIPAA courses include all the information related to HIPAA, compliance, deadlines, and penalties. These courses also include implementation of HIPAA in your job and office, technical guidelines and regulations for HIPAA Privacy rules, and regulations for HIPAA security rules. The course content, information, and details are intended for healthcare professionals, business associates; call center personnel, information technology support, mental health professionals, and health insurance administrators.
“Our training courses have been successfully completed by tens of thousands of professionals. We’re so confident in our training material that we offer a 30-day, no questions asked, money back guarantee,” said Greg Garner, a founding partner of HIPAA Exams. “We are very excited about this opportunity which will allow us to broaden our reach to help individuals and corporations become and maintain compliance in a very cost effect way. It’s been a goal of ours for a very long time, especially in this health care environment where regulations seem to be ever increasing, to offer a quality, cost effect training to the masses. This partnership allows us to do that.”
Additional courses available at this time are Bloodborne Pathogens Training, First Aid and CPR Training, Aseptic Techniques Training, Introduction to the OR, Abuse, Assault and Neglect, Advance Healthcare Directive, Age Appropriate Care, Body Mechanics, Disaster Preparedness, Electrical Safety, Fire Safety Management Plan, Handling Hazardous Materials, Hazard Communication, Infection Control, Latex Allergy, Life Safety, Patient & Family Education and Prevention of Falls.
“We are absolutely ecstatic about our alliance with HIPAA Exams and being able to provide healthcare and sales professionals an opportunity for continued education at significant savings! Beyond the savings, all the courses offered by HIPPA Exams allows subscribers unlimited time to complete the course, unlimited number of chances to test and pass. Upon completion subscribers can instantly print, reprint or quickly download their Nationally Recognized Certificate,” a founding and principal member of MedCepts announced. “During my tenure as a clinical healthcare professional, which included direct patient care, I was a Staff Education Coordinator and a member of the Nursing Practice Editorial Board providing hospital wide education for 1500 nurses including Risk Management, Legal Standards and National policies, procedures of HIPAA, JCAHO and OSHA, in a large teaching hospital in the Northeast. Not only did I immediately recognize the clinical value of what HIPAA Exams offers for our network of healthcare professionals, but we also recognize the enormous value presented for anyone involved in entering a healthcare facility.”
MedCepts and HIPAA Exams plans to forge forward together to offer an endless array of educational tools to healthcare professionals and their business associates, who are now, by virtue of the HITECH Act, required to comply with certain provisions of the HIPAA Rules and may be subject to penalties for noncompliance. The partnership will strive to provide a growing number of courses, exceeding needs of healthcare professionals. Their combined efforts will additionally focus on encouraging all sales associates, vendors, manufacturers, distributors, and other service providers entering a healthcare facility to, not only meet a hospital’s specific requirements for vendors and service providers, but to go well beyond that. “It just doesn’t make sense that everyone wouldn’t want to further their education, whether mandated or not,” said a MedCepts team member. “I cannot see any reason a vendor or manufacturer offering patient transfer products wouldn’t want to encourage a body mechanics course to their sales team members.” Another member at MedCepts added, “I wish I had been advised of additional training recommendations when I first entered into medical sales 20 years ago…” as he continued on, sharing his recollection of a safety related issue where hospital codes were announced, followed by a massive amount of people dodging past him as he remained, “totally clueless” as he put it.
The strategic partnership will unite core values of both companies that education is an invaluable entity and ongoing education should be encouraged by all. The partnership will extend educational courses to healthcare providers, manufacturers, vendors, sales associates, job boards, staffing agencies and all career oriented professionals. This partnership provides for the “Best Pricing” volume discounts for 50,000+ users. MedCepts and HIPAA Exams is extending this discount to all individuals, physician offices, healthcare facilities, insurance agencies, small businesses, sales reps and distributors of the MedCepts network.
