The exam is largely based on compliance work experience and therefore an official study guide is not available for this exam. However, to help prepare for the CHPC examination, CCB recommends candidates:
Review the CHPC Candidate Handbook and the “Detailed Content Outline.”
Read HCCA's Compliance 101 book, The Health Care Compliance Professional's Manual, or The Monitoring and Auditing Practices for Effective Compliance book. All can be ordered from HCCA's website.
Attend an HCCA Health Care Privacy Basic Compliance Academy. There you will receive a complimentary copy of The Health Care Privacy Compliance Handbook, and have access to event materials.
Go to www.hcca-info.org/academies to register.
Use the HCCAnet social network to ask questions and network with other healthcare compliance professionals and CCB certification holders.
Review reference materials and programs that are the basis for the “Detailed Content Outline,” such as the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. These programs and reference materials are created by government agencies and groups that establish policies and guidelines related to healthcare compliance and ethics, and groups that regulate compliance and ethics issues. These include:
HIPAA Privacy Rule
Federal HIPAA reporting
US. Department of Education on FERPA provisions
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services joint guidance on FERPA and HIPAA
