HIPAA Compliance for the Layperson

Are you confused by all the changes in the HIPAA Omnibus Final rule? Do you find a lot of vendors either lack the knowledge or speak in terms you can't understand when it comes to HIPAA Compliance? You're not alone. Now more than ever there is confusion and misinformation surrounding what and when providers need to do in order to get and maintain HIPAA Compliance.

Is Your Backup Plan a Disaster Waiting To Happen?

Do you know the difference between business continuity and data backup?

Data backup in its most simple terms means you have a copy of your data saved to another device and/or location. This data may or may not be verified (something you don’t want to find out when you actually need it most). Having a data backup doesn’t address the most critical element of business protection – DOWNTIME.

Business continuity on the other hand (when done correctly) ensures all of the most critical functions of your business will be available regardless of the nature of your disaster.

The study, conducted under the direction of Dr. John Conly at the Ward of the 21st Century in Calgary¹, sampled 230 keyboards across 3 different ward types in 4 separate hospitals.

HIPAA Compliance and the Dental Practice

Over the past year or so I've had the pleasure of speaking with a great many dental professionals and when the subject of HIPAA and compliance comes up, it's one that's been shrugged off more times than not. I don't believe it's from a lack of concern over security or patient privacy but rather a frustration with ever changing governmental regulations that create additional costs, headache, frustration and in the end don't achieve the desired results they were intended.
