HIPAA COMPLIANCE ESSENTIALS – More than 20 years after HIPAA became law, dental practices continue to struggle with understanding what is necessary to be compliant. Essential elements to compliance with patient rights, uses and disclosures of patient information, required and addressable safeguards, written policies and procedures, and employee training will be reviewed. Ms. Pichay will also review how to conduct a risk analysis. You will leave with a checklist to guide your efforts.
- Learn how to manage certain situations common to dental practices that pertain to patient information
- Verify if you have completed the essential steps for HIPAA compliance
- Know where to look for compliance assistance
DEVELOP YOUR PRACTICE’S EXPOSURE CONTROL PLAN – With a single dental practice being cited $61,000, violations of the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard continues to be #1 for citations in dentistry. Dental offices are required to protect their employees by establishing, implementing, and maintaining a written bloodborne pathogens exposure control plan; this exposure control plan must be reviewed and updated at least annually.
