CITRUS HEIGHTS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Healthcare Delivery Organizations and Providers, Healthcare Management Organizations, HIPAA Compliance Specialists, and Healthcare Executives have a new resource to safeguard one of their most crucial resources: patient information. The National Association of Healthcare Access Management (NAHAM) has partnered with LifeMed ID to develop NAHAM’s first interactive, eLearning training module.

Focusing on patient safety and engagement, this patient ID authentication and record matching module will grant Continuing Education (CE) credits upon completion to NAHAM members and non-members across the nation. NAHAM, which establishes best practices and sets national standards for patient access, collaborated extensively with LifeMed ID to develop a cutting-edge interactive training solution designed to proliferate the latest patient validation and record matching advances in healthcare.

“One of the greatest challenges that the healthcare industry faces in the 21st century is patient validation and record matching while maintaining the protection and accuracy of patient records,” says David Batchelor, Chief Executive Officer of LifeMed ID. “Working closely with NAHAM, it was a priority to ensure the training module incorporated the latest patient identity and record matching standards and workflow automation innovations in healthcare in an easily accessible and interactive online training module. The result is an eLearning CEU program that is both entertaining and informative, emphasizing a patient engagement standard that is consistent and accurate based on compliance, security, and privacy.”

Attendees of the NAHAM 41st Annual Educational Conference & Symposium, being held on April 19th in Indianapolis, IN, will get a sneak-peek of this innovative new training module, with full-length classes scheduled to launch in Q3 of 2015. Trainees may sign up to take the class for Continuing Education credit at either www.lifemedid.com or www.naham.org following full release.
