Training Requirements

Anyone who has access to PHI (Personal Health Information)—whether in written or electronic form—must complete HIPAA training. In a pharmacy setting this would include:

  1. Pharmacists
  2. Pharmacy Technicians
  3. Clerks
  4. Drivers
  5. Billing Personnel
  6. Vendors (business associates) who have access to PHI

Federal Law mandates that new hires must be trained within a reasonable time after joining the covered entity’s workforce. Federal Law only mandates that current employees should complete this training again when the regulations change. However, many businesses have stricter training standards and have annual or biannual training requirements.
