HIPAA Tutorial

The Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was passed by Congress to, among other things, protect the security and confidentiality of health care information. Before students are permitted to shadow in the Emergency Department, Barnes-Jewish Hospital requires that each student complete an on-line HIPAA tutorial. After submitting your on-line registration for MedPrep II you will be sent instructions, a link, and a password for the tutorial via e-mail. It is imperative that you complete this on-line tutorial ASAP after receiving the e-mail. Students who fail to complete the HIPAA tutorial will not be permitted to shadow until it is done.

Students who shadow before completing the tutorial will be dropped from the course.
