ADA HIPAA kit addresses new rules

Time waits for no one, nor do changes to HIPAA rules. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act protects patients' interests. To reinforce that protection—and protect your practice at the same time—consider purchasing the updated ADA Complete HIPAA Compliance Kit (J598).

The ADA Complete HIPAA Compliance Kit has been revised to reflect changes imposed by the 2013 Omnibus Final Rule.

New requirements include:

• revising Notice of Privacy Practices and providing the new notice to patients;

• updating breach notification policies and procedures;

• including new provisions in business associate agreements and revising existing agreements;

• obtaining written patient authorization before making certain marketing communications or selling patient information.

The kit has tools to help you design and implement a comprehensive HIPAA compliance program. It includes: The ADA Practical Guide to HIPAA Compliance: Privacy and Security Manual, The ADA Practical Guide to HIPAA Training and a three-year subscription to the HIPAA Compliance Update Service.

The manual has these tools to aid in comprehension and documentation: sample policies and procedures; a revised sample Business Associate Agreement; a revised sample Notice of Privacy Practices; a glossary of key terms; and a CD-ROM for tailoring the content to your practice.

The ADA Practical Guide to HIPAA Training is a CD-ROM with two levels of instruction. Dental office personnel are the target audience for level one, through which staff members can learn the basics of HIPAA compliance. Managers are the target audience for level two. It features in-depth modules to help managers design a practice's HIPAA program.
