Six Steps to a Paperless Practice: How to Avoid a $50K Mistake
Dr. Lavine provides attendees with the tools and techniques needed to transition their practices efficiently and effectively. Attendees will learn a 6-Step “Treatment Plan” for deciding which technology to add and when, as well as how to integrate and sequence the technologies into the practice, involve the team and avoid costly mistakes.
HIPAA: the Good, the Bad …and Compliance
Recent changes to HIPAA rules have clarified the potential fines and penalties for non-compliance up to as much as $1.5M. Many practices that have had to report breaches have lost upwards of 25% of their patients immediately. Dr. Lavine walks attendees through a step-by-step game plan which details the policies and procedures that practices must implement to move toward full compliance.
Implementing technological tools is one of the best ways to increase dental practice revenue and efficiency. Without the right expertise, however, it is easy to stumble on costly pitfalls and obstacles. Adding to the challenges are Federal laws such as HIPAA and HITECH that add technical, physical, and administrative burdens on dentists.
Dentists need someone who not only understands technology but also the unique needs of dental practices.
