HIPAA - Privacy & Security
Even though dental offices are self-contained entities, HIPAA rules for dentists apply to any dental practice that may send claims, eligibility requests, pre-determinations, claim status inquiries or treatment authorization requests electronically.
Furthermore, policies must be developed to instruct dental office team members on procedures for the use, disclosure and safeguarding of the PHI – not only to patients and colleagues, but also to business associates and third-party service providers.
Use this course as a team building exercise to strengthen HIPAA compliance in your dental practice. When viewing this course, it is recommended to have all team members in attendance as this ensures everyone receives this mandatory training. Conduct a post-course discussion to answer any questions and review current HIPAA policies.
