Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
HIPAAExams.com, the leading online HIPAA training provider, announced today the launch of a new self-study training module, Texas HB 300, to support the Texas Legislature’s adoption of House Bill 300, which took effect September 1, 2012. House Bill 300 impacts anyone who comes in contact with protected health information and does business in Texas. HIPAA Exams understands the importance of this bill and has included this new module in the existing Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Training Course.
Texas House Bill 300 significantly expands the State’s patient privacy protections for covered entities and in fact goes well beyond HIPAA to ensure privacy and security. HB 300 revises the definition of a covered entity and increases mandates for covered entities. These covered entities must comply with Texas HB 300 as penalties are imposed for breaches. The new HIPAA Exams training module, Texas HB 300, clearly outlines the changes, the mandates, the penalties, and what is necessary to prepare for Texas HB 300. This training module is extremely important for anyone doing business in Texas who is training employees or is concerned about compliance.
