ADA Webinar Will Address HIPAA Regulation for Dental Practices

On Thursday, August 9 from 2:00 - 3:00 PM, the ADA will host a free webinar, "HIPAA Security Risk Analysis." The webinar will focus on only one particular aspect of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. 

However, understanding that aspect — the security rule regulation — is critical to the entire success of a dental practice’s security compliance program. 

This webinar will provide dental team leaders in charge of their employers’ HIPAA compliance programs an opportunity to learn some more about security risk analysis, a critical part of any covered dental practice’s HIPAA compliance efforts.
