Any dental practice that is uncertain if is fully compliant with HIPAA and state privacy laws will benefit from four new HIPAA training resources available in the CDA Practice Support section of cda.org. Each resource is intended to train both the privacy officer and the security officer in a dental practice on their shared responsibilities. These shared responsibilities include development of written policies and procedures, staff training and discipline, risk analysis and mitigation and breach assessment and notification.
The four resources are:
These new resources join two others already available to members: “Information Privacy and Security – HIPAA, State Laws” and “Access to Patient Records.” A dental practice can use those two resources in conjunction with its written policies and procedures to train all staff and other individuals who work in the practice. HIPAA does not require “HIPAA certification” and does not require that staff training be provided annually or by a third party.
Access the new resources in the CDA Practice Support resource library.
