Identity Theft & Privacy Protection


Protecting Patients and Practitioners

Rising identity fraud issues present a major concern for the safeguarding of knowledge about patients within medical settings. Statistics indicate that 250,000 individuals in the United States were victims of medical identity fraud last year.

HIPAA, state legislation and a number of other regulations, including the Red Flags Law and FACTA, allow healthcare professionals to protect personally identifiable information about patients. Theft of medical identification is one of the riskiest types of identity theft. As a result, the full security of the privacy of your patients requires a robust patient safety program.

At the Linda Harvey Group, we offer a course that builds on basic HIPAA knowledge while introducing healthcare professionals to identity theft issues. Let us help you to heighten awareness for personal liability, in turn creating a safer dental practice for both your team and your patients.

Participants will:

  • Learn what constitutes identity theft and why it is so problematic
  • Identify the different types of identity theft
  • Review the applicable laws
  • Understand the legal liability associated with identity theft
  • Discuss how to design policy and procedures that fully protect patients
