You have a professional and ethical obligation to maintain the privacy and security of patient information. Three primary federal laws govern your legal responsibility: Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Health Information Technology for Clinical and Economic Health Act (HITECH) and the Omnibus Final Rule. This 10-hour course provides you with an in-depth review of these laws along with practical applications for dentistry.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Define the requirements of each law
- Identify state and federal regulatory obligations
- Compare regulatory requirements against your own current HIPAA compliance program
- Understand HIPAA requirements and apply them to your practice
There is no prerequisite knowledge needed for these courses.
