The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was introduced in 1996. The HIPAA requirements were recently updated expanding the requirements to keep patient records confidential. This legislation is designed to prevent healthcare fraud by safeguarding a patient’s sensitive information and providing a way for the patient to specify who is able to access and use their health information. Annual training on HIPAA and the effects of implicit bias are mandated by the Federal government. Dr. Mario Fucinari will update the attendees as he guides you through a nuts-and-bolts risk assessment of your office, explaining the required actions and guidelines to keep your office compliant from the front desk to the treatment room.
