Is Your Teletherapy Process HIPAA Safe?
Most clinicians have gaps in their security processes that leave PHI vulnerable.
Keeping your client’s private information safe from the most common and easily prevented risks is simple, once you know what to do.
Part of what lets vulnerable clients know they can trust us with their stories is the knowledge that we regard those stories as sacred and private.
So that raises a question: how do we hold a safe, secure space when clients communicate with us by email, text, or phone?
It all starts with you, your processes… and your devices.
Somehow you take the driest material and make it fun and immediately relevant. You folks knock it out of the park!
Supported HIPAA & Teletherapy Security Bundle
As clinicians, we’re not just writing our progress notes or sending emails through our devices; we’re providing all our client care through our devices too.
This highlights that these powerful tools can also make the client information they’re used to access and handle very vulnerable if not properly secured.
In the COVID context, security vulnerabilities of devices and online systems are being exploited at record rates and with very real consequences.
This bundle is designed to equip you with the tools you need to secure your devices and processes, so that you can have peace of mind that you’re protecting client info and meeting your legal-ethical requirements in this new teletherapy and work-from-home landscape.
Ideal for solo practitioners who are offering teletherapy from a home or mobile office.
Built with Adult Learning Principles
Applying andragogical techniques to our courses has made them very popular! We know you’re taking this course to improve your security processes– not just to fill a CE credit requirement (although the CE credit is a nice perk!)
Unlike the boring courses you watch while cooking dinner (and remember next to nothing from) our courses are crafted using andragogical techniques so that you stay engaged and retain the information so you can use it in your real word practice situations.
