HIPAA for Dental Professionals is organized by AchieveCE.
From the phone messages that receptionists leave for patients to the type of information that is shared with third parties when submitting insurance claims, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act impacts almost every aspect of dental practice. A dentist, whether practicing solo or within a large practice, faces fines and other legal and professional consequences if he or she fails to uphold their duty to protect their patients’ personal information. The following course provides an overview of HIPAA requirements for dentists and dental practices as well as steps that practitioners can take to comply with these requirements.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
• Describe the purpose of HIPAA.
• Identify the types of individuals and entities covered under HIPAA.
• Describe the types of personal information protected under HIPAA.
• Provide an overview of the HIPAA provisions related to the use and disclosure of protected health information.
• Describe the steps that covered entities must take to keep patient information secure.
• Describe the steps that must be taken in the event of a HIPAA breach.
• Describe the penalties for HIPAA violations.
