Free HIPAA and Research Certificate

Free HIPAA and Research Certificate Training for Students

HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and it is a US law designed to protect the privacy of patients’ health information. It sets the standards on how the patient medical information will be protected while allowing appropriate flow of the health information to provide high quality health care. Anyone interacting with patients is required to have a proof of HIPAA knowledge.

In addition to HIPAA laws, there are regulations and laws on how to conduct ethical and safe research with human subjects.
