NU Online News Service, Nov. 12, 12:25 p.m. – EduNeering Inc., Princeton, N.J., has introduced an automated course for health plan employees about the new federal health information privacy standards.

The government says it will begin enforcing the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act privacy standards in April 2003.

HIPAA requires health plans and other “covered entities” to train employees about the relevant privacy provisions. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services believes 13 million U.S. health care workers will need HIPAA privacy training, EduNeering says.

The EduNeering course includes a “general awareness” class, classes that deal with specific topics in more depth, and an “e-signature attestation” system. Employers can use the attestation system to collect electronic confirmation that employees have seen and taken the required courses.
