The ADA Complete HIPAA Compliance Kit

William Fay, DDS, leverages more than 20 years of orthodontic experience to serve as the founder of his own cosmetic orthodontic practice, which includes two California locations, in South San Francisco and American Canyon. To stay at the forefront of the dental industry, William Fay, DDS, also maintains membership with the American Dental Association (ADA), American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) and World Federation of Orthodontists.

ADA recently introduced its Complete HIPAA Compliance Kit, a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations training program that utilizes a gaming format to help practitioners learn about compliance matters. The kit offers links to sites, such as HealthIT.gov, that offer game-like security training modules. In these modules, participants can hypothetically react to the security and privacy issues commonly encountered in small practices.

The ADA Complete HIPAA Compliance Kit also includes advice about securing “protected health information,” or PHI, in response to current medical data corruption scams. To mitigate risk, the ADA kit recommends that medical practices back up PHI and implement appropriate defenses to protect the stored information
