ADA Logo.jpg
As I preach here on a regular basis, you cannot be too concerned about your data security.  It is imperative that all offices make rock solid sure that they are prepared from a full on security standpoint.  There area also the nuances of HIPAA that must be learned and followed.  To help with this, the ADA is putting on a HIPAA Security Risk Analysis Webinar  that will help doctors understand this situation better.

About this event
This webinar is intended for Dental Practice Team Leaders with HIPAA Security Official responsibilities in their job roles. 

The webinar will discuss how to comply with the HIPAA Security Rule's Risk Analysis requirement using a qualitative risk analysis methodology. It will also cover some reasonable risk mitigation strategies and suggest resources for further study. 

While the webinar can serve as part of a covered dental practice's HIPAA training, it is not intended as a replacement for an ongoing, tailored, well-documented workforce training program.
