Meeting HIPAA compliance requirements can be confusing and time consuming, especially when new requirements are added. The risks of non-compliance can be expensive both monetarily and in negative publicity about a dental practice. Learn the latest developments in HIPAA rules and requirements and develop a plan to enhance or update your needed documentation and training regarding: Security risk assessment and analysis, employee activities that may put the practice at risk for a security breach, protocols to follow if a security breach occurs, types of HIPAA-required documentation, systems to ensure that the practice is HIPAA compliant.

 Program Objectives:

  • Differentiate between the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules
  • Learn what is required by HIPAA for documentation in a dental practice
  • Receive and discuss compliance checklists and practical tips to meet the requirements
  • Evaluate current documentation for HIPAA compliance
