Avoid the Million Dollar Mistake: HIPAA Security Compliance
Protecting Your Patients, Your Practice and Yourself!

Kenneth W. Aschheim, DDS, Presenter

The New York State Dental Association is presenting a 3-hour HIPAA Security Compliance course. The course will answer frequently asked questions about the maintenance and transmission of protected patient information. Specific requirements associated with safeguarding, storing and transmitting electronically maintained information will be explained. The goal is to educate the dental team on how to comply with these complex regulations and avoid punitive sanctions.

Each dental practice attending will receive the NYSDA HIPAA Security Regulation Compliance Manual and guidance for completing the necessary forms and checklists contained within the Manual. Because the HIPAA security regulations include staff training requirements, dentists are encouraged to bring a member of their office team to the course.
