Note:  The Training Materials were updated on 4/22/16.​ Please discard older versions and use the current version HIPAA Training Manual for Volunteers-Contractors-Temps-Registry.

Individuals placed in County programs covered by HIPAA (see Master List of Covered Components) will be identified and are required to have training ​on the County's HIPAA Policies and Procedures.  The County will provide operational policies and procedures for the training of the contracted, temporary agency, registry employee or volunteer. Contractors who provide those employees are responsible to: 

  1. Have their employees review the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule training materials (see HIPAA Training Manual for Volunteers-Contractors-Temps-Registry link above)
  2. Have each employee sign a Training Acknowledgement form regarding County of Sacramento Privacy and Security Rule practices.  (The form is on the last page of the training materials.)  A copy of the signed form must be provided to the Office of Compliance.

The forms are to be signed prior to starting work in the County assignment covered by HIPAA. Instructions on distribution of the acknowledgement forms are located at the bottom of each form.
