Clarification on Your Legal Obligations Per HIPAA and the 21st Century Cures Act

It turns out I was wrong about the 21st Century Cures Act.

But only in technical terms, really.

The reality of the situation that dental practice owners are in is still a dire one, perhaps even more serious than we previously realized.

In this episode of “The Patient First Podcast,” I explain why we need a correction in our understanding of the federal legislation pertaining to the handling of dental patient information. In short, dentists and DSOs of all sizes are obligated by HIPAA to make patient data accessible to their patients, and the 21st Century Cures Act prohibits actions that unnecessarily limit accessibility to data.

I also explain what is currently the ONLY solution that allows dental practices to comply with both HIPAA and Cures Act regulations.
