We’ve all heard about HIPAA, and it has become a big part of our daily lives. Still,
many practices do not understand the new regulations and believe they are compliant
if they have a patient sign a Notice of Privacy Act. The new HIPAA Omnibus Rule became effective March 26, 2013. Dental practices are required to be compliant (as of September 23, 2013).

Putting together a comprehensive HIPAA protocol and policyprogram can be a daunting task. In his course, learn the required changes to the Notice of Privacy Practices Form, the financial implications for willful neglect, why a daily data backup is no longer enough, and the communications that must not be sent via email or text. Gain a better understanding of the steps required to achieve compliance and protect both patients and the practice.


Program Objectives:
•Review the steps to mandatory HIPAA compliance
• Discover what is included in comprehensive risk analysis
• Determine what functions the Privacy Officer, Security Officer, and
Technology Officer are responsible for
• Learn who Covered Entities and Business Associates are and why it matters
• Recognize the new required changes to the Notice of Privacy Practices Form
• Know who you must have a Business Associate Agreement with
• Understand breach notification: who must be notified and when

Theresa Sheppard’s presentations provide the tools and systems necessary to become skilled in insurance billing practices, risk management and patient/practice protection.

Theresa’s passion for dentistry and love of teaching merged when she became the Owner and Director of Career Express Dental Assisting School, as well as being an instructor for the California Radiation Safety Course. Theresa is a Registered Dental Assistant with experience in all clinical and management aspects of the dental office. This, coupled with her extensive hands-on, front lines experience of over 30 years, uniquely qualifies her to train dental teams. Theresa utilizes experiential learning techniques and a workshop environment to ensure participants are empowered and able to implement the learning when returning to the office.
