There seems to be a bit of confusion when it comes to employee training, what is required and how often, so I hope to clear things up. However keep in mind, 82% of the regulatory requirements is the responsibility of the employees, employers can reduce a huge amount of liability by providing yearly training as an “Office Standard”. The potential outcome from non-trained and undertrained employees can be devastating, just HIPAA’s minimum $100,000.00 fine will close down most small healthcare businesses. My approach is to be proactive and set standards that are far above the government requirements and train your team to maintain those standards.
