Ed Sorensen, Jupiter Medical Center
I would like to take a moment to express my thanks for your wonderful program, the CHSE course.In our ever changing world of technology, I was beginning to feel a bit lost in regards to the regulations and what meets the criteria of security of our electronic and digital PHI (ePHI) for HIPAA purposes.This course has really given me a lot of insight and understanding of how HIPAA security is applied in the realm of technology. It has expanded my knowledge in the areas of how security and privacy rules relate to technologies both in and out of the office (mobile media).

It has also helped me work on a implementing a strong security policy, advanced safeguards and a comprehensive risk assessment plan for my organization.

I wanted to take a few minutes and thank you for the quality product from the Supremus Group. I had recently checked with some friends in the healthcare industry about HIPAA certifications and they pointed me to your website .After spending some time on the website, I decided to purchase the Online Anytime Training and associated manual for the Certified HIPAA Security Expert program (CHSE). Well, I have to admit that I was a bit anxious going forward with this computer based training, but as soon as I received it I was pleasantly surprised!The online training is broken into real-world modules and chapters that parallel exactly what is being taught in the book. By using the combination of the two, I was able to pass my CHSE test on the very first attempt.I strongly recommend this course material to anyone who wants to prepare for the certification and wants to enhance their knowledge in the area of HIPAA security. I feel that I am now able to better contribute to corporate security policies, access control systems, and many documented procedures in a more-comprehensive manner after my training.Thank You Bob and Supremus!!
