ADA HIPAA kit can educate on compliance

June 15, 2015 Having the right tools when it comes to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act can help save dentists and practices a lot of time and worry.

The ADA Complete HIPAA Compliance Kit (J598) includes three vital components to help dental practices with their HIPAA compliance program: The ADA Practical Guide to HIPAA Compliance Privacy and Security Manual; a three-year subscription to the annual HIPAA Compliance Update Service; The ADA Practical Guide to HIPAA Training CD-ROM. ADA members who order the kit today can save 20 percent.

The kit is designed to be one-stop shopping for practices looking to educate their staff on the basics of HIPAA compliance, as well implementing and maintaining a practice compliance program. It also incorporates changes prescribed by the issuance of the 2013 Final Rule, and includes sample versions of two frequently used documents, the HIPAA business associate agreement and the notice of privacy practices in English and Spanish.

ADA Catalog’s 2015 updates for the HIPAA update service will be mailed this month. ADA members whose three-year subscriptions have lapsed should renew their subscriptions and stay up-to-date.

New this year is a flash drive, which replaces the CD-ROM that came with past versions of the manual. The flash drive is included along with printed pages of the updates and contains updated documents in PDF and Word formats, allowing update subscribers to customize documents for their practices.

To order the ADA Complete HIPAA Compliance Kit ($300 for ADA members; $450 retail), call 1-800-947-4746 or visit ADAcatalog.org. If you already have the kit, make sure your update subscription is current.
