Healthcare organizations like yours are trusted with some of the most valuable information an individual can share. When PHI is at stake, employees with access to this sensitive data need to know more than proper HIPAA practices to keep that data safe. Focusing on just HIPAA compliance makes healthcare organizations a soft target for cyberattacks.
Look at your clinic or hospital through the eyes of a cybercriminal. All that patient personal information just sitting there, waiting to be swiped and resold on the black market. Mere HIPAA compliance does not equate to a fully cybersecurity-aware culture. In our experience, organizations of all types are best served when their whole employee population knows the importance of sound security principles.
Your employees are your last safeguard against data breaches, fines, and reputational damage. This means a well thought out and expertly sourced approach to employee education should be a top priority.
That’s why MediaPro provides an industry-leading awareness program solution for healthcare organizations that blends HIPAA training with educational content on cybersecurity best practices, all based on proven adult learning principles.

At MediaPro, we make it easy for healthcare organizations like yours to purchase and deploy an awareness program that’s right for them and their budget. We offer four programs to fit most any need. Learn more about the tiers below:
The Tier 1 program is perfect for small clinics and those just getting started on an awareness program who seek an easy-to-deploy, budget-friendly solution. This program includes:
-A simple survey designed to gauge your employees’ knowledge of HIPAA rules and security and privacy best practices
-A pre-built training program plan, based on general risks in the healthcare industry
-One online training course that combines HIPAA compliance with cybersecurity basics
-Two engaging animated videos (or other reinforcement content), designed to cement the key concepts of the training
The Tier 2 program is recommended for mid-sized clinics and healthcare centers with moderate to high risk exposure who have the budget to bring their employee training initiative to the next level. This program includes:
-One-time employee knowledge assessment and phishing email simulation before and after training to help gauge effectiveness
-Yearly program planning incorporating data from the knowledge assessment and phishing simulation
-One online training course, with role-based selection to get the right content to all employees
-Quarterly reinforcement content deployment focused on the most important risks
The Tier 3 program is best for organizations with high risk exposure who want a first-class employee awareness program. This program includes:
-Quarterly phishing email simulations and twice-yearly knowledge assessments to evaluate employee knowledge and measure training effectiveness
-Risk-aligned program planning with periodic program reviews to maximize relevance
-Multiple online training courses with added role-based selection to make sure employees receive only the most relevant training
-Multiple reinforcement deployments (quarterly at a minimum) using a variety of content types, including video, posters, articles, and more
Adaptive plans include all the components of a Tier 3 Comprehensive plan, but deployed strategically after quarterly program reviews that assess performance and help address emerging risks.
The Adaptive plan is recommended for healthcare organizations with high risk exposure who want a best-in-class employee training and awareness program. A Tier 4 program identifies deliverables 3-6 months in advance, and includes content reviews on a quarterly basis to make adjustments in response to emerging threats and changes in employee performance.
Each Tiered Program Plan follows our proven Adaptive Awareness Framework approach to adult e-Learning: Analyze, Plan, Train, and Reinforce. The Framework is not a one-size-fits-all process that is to be followed in lock-step. Instead, it is a flexible and self-correcting model that encourages healthcare organizations to analyze their risks, build a plan for improvement, and offer training and reinforcement tuned to their unique risks and training needs. All of MediaPro’s programs are aligned with major industry standards, including HIPAA and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
