The federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is designed to ensure that all protected health information (PHI) be kept private and secure by all persons who handle, or have access to, that information. Therefore, all ACC students, faculty, and staff who come in contact with PHI as a part of the educational or work responsibilities must complete the College’s online training module. Health Sciences (credit & Continuing Education) faculty, staff, and students are expected to complete the module annually. All other ACC employees required to complete the training will do so once, or upon hire. All ACC students, faculty, and staff required to complete the training will be provided with updates as necessary.
There are two different training resources based on your position within ACC.
All Health Science and Human Service Students, Faculty, and Staff are to use this module:
Health Science HIPAA.
All Non-Health Science staff are to use this module:
Non-Health Science HIPAA.
