With all the new HIPAA rules and changes, dentists and their staffs need to know what to do, how to do it and what the concerns should be. Are you referring patients back and forth? Are you sending emails? How do you send records? What if you have a question to ask about a shared patient – can you just send an email? Do you use an encryption program? What programs are out there? Is your data secure? What if you get hacked?


This course will cover:

  • HIPAA rules and the new changes and liability
  • Compliance
  • Encryption programs and processes
  • Hacking concerns and threats
  • Cyber security and breaches
