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.
