This training guide is designed to provide a substantive, reasonably comprehensive understanding of all of the aspects of HIPAA that have bearing on most healthcare industry professionals. It is based almost completely on first-hand materials from the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) (which the law charges with administration of HIPAA) and the actual Health Insurance and Portability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) law itself, rather than relying on secondary and tertiary interpretations and paraphrasing. However, these resources do not and cannot provide every detail for all scenarios. As such, several third-party sources were taken into account to gather and present the fullest comprehension of the materials and their relevance for the covered entities HIPAA affects.

This guide was originally developed in June 2016 by Alan Vaughan. Shawn Douglas recompiled the information into a more consistent format and lightly edited the content for clarity in February 2022.
