Providence Medical Center and Saint John Hospital HIPAA Training

2-6-2005

Providence Medical Center and Saint John Hospital chose AllofE to develop a custom online training system that ensures employees meet the requirements set by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).  Providence and Saint John currently publish The Educator magazine to update employees on policies, standards, safety issues and information, and other featured articles.  Using a custom web content management application, AllofE has transformed The Educator into an intuitive, interactive Web site where employees can quickly locate key information, browse the site through a guided page-by-page walkthrough, and prepare to take the HIPAA competency test. 

The system provides test takers with required links and information all in one centralized location.  Users login, take the test, get immediate results, and print a certificate of completion.  The system provides Providence and Saint John with a tool to track the testing process and employee progress.  It saves time through automation of training and testing and decreases the costs associated with printing The Educator magazine.  With the online site, Providence and Saint John can maintain up to date and relevant information and quickly make changes to training and testing content.
