Elsevier Expands Professional Training Solutions With HCPro’s Corporate Compliance and HIPAA Libraries

Targeted education meets demands of healthcare industry’s compliance regulations

Philadelphia, PA, September 14, 2015

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced an agreement to resell HCPro’s HIPAA and Corporate Compliance content to hospitals and health systems across the U.S. The new content libraries are available as part of Elsevier’s comprehensive ICD and CDI eLearning solutions.

HCPro’s Corporate Compliance and HIPAA libraries are designed for healthcare organizations (HCOs) – hospitals, health systems and medical groups – eager to achieve compliance with federal regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), False Claims Act, Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009 (FERA), Stark Law, Anti-Kickback Statute, and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. Each of the libraries contains seven full-length courses and seven refresher courses all tailored to the specific needs of various healthcare professionals.

“Hospitals and health systems can’t escape the impact of regulations like HIPAA. By offering our compliance libraries, Elsevier helps providers comply with a law that can be long, complicated and difficult to manage,” said Deborah Neville, Director of Revenue Cycle, Coding and Compliance at Elsevier. “As a complement to Elsevier’s Performance Manager, providers and trainers can create plans that address gaps in compliance knowledge so they can ensure orientation, training and development enterprise-wide.”

HCPro Corporate Compliance provides individual courses for nurses, clinicians, physicians, coders, billers and executives, as well as staff in health information management, registration and front desk and nutrition, environmental and volunteer services.  Also provided are compliance refresher courses specific to job roles.

HCPro HIPAA complements HCPro Corporate Compliance by offering HIPAA information categorized by job role or function, including executive, administrative and corporate staff, business associates, nutrition, environmental services, and volunteer staff, coders, billers and health information management staff, physicians, nurses and clinical staff and registration and front office staff.

Each HIPAA module offers a comprehensive overview of privacy and security issues, including confidentiality, patient rights, disclosure and protection of personal health information (PHI), identify theft and patient authorizations.  Also offered within HCPro HIPAA are refresher courses by job function.
