HIPAA requires a covered dental practice to have written policies and procedures on breach notification and to adhere to them before, during and after a breach. Failure to do so can result in penalties. Your practice's HIPAA policies and procedures can help you prevent and prepare for a data breach.
This user-friendly book will guide you through the steps of creating a compliant breach notification program, emphasizing how to prevent breaches and how to react if a breach is suspected. Even a dental practice that is fully HIPAA compliant can have a data breach, but preparation can help manage stress, expenses and even help prevent missteps if a data breach does occur.

- Secure protected health information (PHI)
- Send a breach notification
- Notify affected individuals
- Notify the Office of Civil Rights (OCR)
- Delete social media posts

It also addresses:
