Pennsylvania Academy of General Dentistry
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is thought of as a privacy law to protect medical information and patients’ records and to allow for confidential communication between patients and health professionals. Many dental practices are subject to HIPAA rules and may benefit from increased understanding of HIPAA compliance for all forms of health information, including electronic, paper, radiographs, photographs, and spoken. This session will review basic steps that any dental practice can take to meet HIPAA privacy and security requirements, such as performing a risk assessment, training staff, and developing practice policies and procedures to protect patient information.Expand summary
