HIPAA regulations require covered entities to comply with the Privacy, Security, and the new Omnibus Rules. Dentists must update their notice of privacy practices, create written plans, conduct a risk assessment, create the necessary logs, update business associates agreements, understand how to prevent breaches and know what to do if a breach occurs.

In addition, workforce training must take place periodically covering office policies, procedures, and plans to protect patient’s privacy. Awareness training protects the practice, patient data, and prevents breaches. This CE course goes into detail the tips and tools for every dental office to be HIPAA compliant.
