### This workshop WILL NOT BE streamed. Workshop will be live at Hyatt Place Boise/Towne Square. ###

With more and more data breaches making headlines, it’s safe to say we’re all a bit more concerned about our personal information and its disclosure. One could make the argument that HIPAA privacy and security standards are more relevant today than even just a few short years ago. What are you doing to protect your patients’ privacy? To protect your practice? What progress are you making?

Whether you’ve been diligent in your efforts or need some help taking your first several steps, we’d like to invite you to join us as we bring Todd Baker – a HIPAA attorney, and Nathan Colt – a cyber-security professional to BOISE to present simplified, actionable steps to get you a jump start on accomplishing your practice’s privacy and security objectives.

The Bite-Size HIPAA® curriculum was conceived as an attempt to dissect and simplify the confusing, overwhelming, and often paralyzing task of becoming HIPAA compliant. Participating dental offices will leave with an understanding of the various roles and responsibilities – both internal and external – of their HIPAA “team”, along with a clear path to improving HIPAA compliance.

THIS WORKSHOP’S CONTENT HAS BEEN CREATED FOR PRACTICE OWNERS. Privacy Officials and Security Officials are invited to attend as well. Participants will leave with:

  • An understanding of the objectives of HIPAA including patient privacy and security
  • An understanding of the key positions needed to create your HIPAA team including your practice’s Privacy Official and Security Official
  • Written descriptions to assist you in rounding out your team with the right Business Associates
  • Sample resources including job descriptions, a Business Associate Agreement with security expectations, and a Staff Acceptable Use Agreement.
