Things have changed drastically since HIPAA first entered the healthcare world in 1996! Just think about how many changes have happened with dental offices, equipment, and standards of practice, and you’ll get an idea of how much the laws and regulations have changed when it comes to security and patient privacy. Not only have the laws and regulations evolved and grown, but so have the obstacles and potential threats to your business!

If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that life is unpredictable. You cannot predict when a pandemic will hit the world, or when a wild fire will threaten your home, or when a hurricane will wipe out cities; but you can set your business up for success by preparing for the unknown. You can put things in place to protect the vulnerable information you have been entrusted with, even when life throws you a curve ball. This course breaks down the “geek speak” and leaves you with a better understanding of what you can prepare for to avoid costly disasters when the unpredictable hits your world.

  • Learn the basics of HIPAA, the HITECH Act, and the Omnibus Final Rule
