HIPAA Compliance Seminar
 
All health care providers—including dentists—must comply with the HIPAA requirements put in place by the Affordable Care Act. The SDDA is offering a seminar that will teach HIPAA requirements for your practice; operational and the administrative safeguards; and, staff compliance. Most importantly the seminar will teach how to prevent a breach of patient information. A breach, whether accidentally or maliciously, could cost you both thousands of dollars and your professional reputation. This seminar is appropriate for the dentist and the office manager or HIPAA compliance officer.
 

The seminar will be offered at the following dates and locations. 

Huron, February 9,  9-11 am

Sioux Falls, February 9,  1-3 pm
Watertown, February 10, 9-11 am

Aberdeen, February 10,  1:30-3:30 pm
