OSHA/HIPAA compliance can be complex and overwhelming, with multiple laws governing your legal responsibility.
There can be many sources of information, from books and free courses, to guidance passed on secondhand from colleagues. In a regulatory landscape that is ever-changing, with new responsibilities and unknown risks, is this really enough?
Will it ensure your practice is protected from the fines, penalties, and negative press if a complaint is filed against it or if you have a random inspection?
And it certainly won't put you in a position of confident compliance.
What's the alternative?
The path to confidence is knowledge — knowledge gained directly from experts, firsthand. Knowledge that you can trust and depend upon.
At the Institute for Dental Compliance and Risk Management we want to give you the knowledge, skills and tools to not only tackle the compliance challenges your practices faces today, but the confidence that you'll be able to truly safeguard your practice, your patients, and your team for the future.
This knowledge is gained through a tried and tested training program, which has already given confidence to many other practices throughout the country.

HIPAA Compliance for the Dental Professional
Healthcare practitioners 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. Understanding your legal obligation and how these laws pertain to your practice is essential.
Our 10-hour training program teaches the History of Privacy, the Privacy Rule, and the Security Rule — and how these laws pertain to your practice.
