We are unable to advise on legalities for each individual state or country, and we advise due diligence in asking insurance companies about malpractice insurance coverage. We do not have specific recommendations for malpractice insurance carriers. However, we can say that carriers will not, in general, cover you for legal proceedings that occur outside the United States.If you need advice on how to proceed legally from there, it is best to get advice from legal counsel. Person Centered Tech does not employ attorneys for advising our colleagues, so we are unable to provide legal counsel for you.
Unfortunately, the issues with Zoom in general persist, even when used through a third-party service provider that does all the security things right on their end. Until Zoom shows a security culture shift -- not holding our breath -- then it would be better advised to use a different video conferencing platform with whom there is a greater and demonstrated ability to trust.We have two articles that you will find helpful guides in finding an alternative: https://personcenteredtech.com/2020/04/13/alternatives-to-zoom-for-groups-and-family-therapy and https://personcenteredtech.com/2016/02/16/free-online-therapy-software-compared-usefulness-ease-security-support-hipaa/
For all courses, there are handouts, found on the left-hand side navigation menu, which we highly encourage you to use. All post-tests are open-book. You can take the post-test for each course as many times as needed in order to pass, with no penalty.For the TMH certification and Engaging in HIPAA Security and Digital Confidentiality as a Mental Health Professional, all the quiz questions are contained in the module reviews. You can go back to the module reviews, which will show the correct answers, to discover what answers are incorrect in the post-test.While we understand that this may feel frustrating, per our CE provider approval requirements from the approval bodies, we cannot show incorrect answers on the post-tests prior to the post-test being passed.
Person Centered Tech reviews are based, primarily, around HIPAA-appropriateness rather than assessment of quality of features and functionality. We do our best to recommend products that we find support clinicians in both their security and functionality needs, but our main aim is to let folks know how to best use products in a HIPAA secure manner.
We recommend our course, Legally Practicing Across Borders: A Detailed Survey of Interstate and International Mental Health Practice, as well as our 50-State Emergency Teletherapy Practice, Rules Survey for Counselors, MFTs, Psychologists, and Clinical Social Workers. Please note, we can not advise on legalities for each individual state and country, so we advise due diligence in finding this information. We do not have specific recommendations for malpractice insurance carriers. Most (or all) carriers will not cover you for legal proceedings that occur outside the United States.
The program represents 17 CE credit hours, so expect it take approximately that long to complete, with adjustments -- should you need or wish to replay any segments. Please see the Learning Center from your dashboard for more information and guidance, if you've already registered for the program, on quick-start options.
If you’re only seeing "save answers" and not "submit for grading" at the end of a test, that means there are missing answers for 1 or more questions. You need to go back through the test and ensure that each question has been answered. You should then get the "submit for grading" option at the end of the test.
