Houston, We Have a Problem – IT Security, Disaster Recovery, HIPAA Compliance

2 CEU, Core • $75 Member Price

Does 192.168.1.1 mean anything to you? How about backup validation?
This is one area of dental practice we can safely say we did not get any training in dental school. Let’s face it the days of the paper chart are numbered especially with the federal government pushing for electronic medica. So I would like to take the fear out of the unknown and give the attendee the tools and basic knowledge to be able to have an educated discussion with your IT service personnel to significantly reduce future computer problems. I want you taking care of your patients and not reinstalling Windows or Eaglesoft. The best offense is an amazing defense.

Course Objectives:

  • Understand the basic “anatomy” of a computer network and failure points
  • Simple and effective methods to keep your computer systems free from viruses and drive by downloads
  • Keeping your patient data safe and make sure your back-up is working
  • How to choose an IT service company
  • Most of us have most likely sent out an email with a radiograph attached; Unfortunately, this is a HIPAA violation and come with a $10,000 to $250,000 fine per incident. Fortunately, I have a simple and easy way around that only requires a web browser.

The Insurance You Need – Or Shouldn’t Do Without

No CEU • $75 Member Price

Is your practice AND your life appropriately insured? What if you can’t go to work tomorrow?
What if your practice burned down (and you were in it, but lived)? What is your most valuable asset in your practice? If your practice stops for either your own disability or something out of your control (i.e fire, computer hacking and shut down, accident) how do you pay the bills, the mortgage, your employee salaries, your loans? How long are you protected, even with insurance?

Do you sleep at night? Attend this course so that you will…:

  • Discover insurance available as a business owner as well as a clinical dentist
  • Become aware of the unknown risks that may plague your practice – and how to avoid or PROTECT you, your employees and your practice
  • Understand how disability companies define “disability” and how you can be paid … or not!
  • Why, and at what age and level of health, should you buy disability insurance?
  • Become aware of the unknown risks that may plague your practice and your ability to produce income– and how to avoid or PROTECT you, your family, your employees and your practice
