#604 - HIPAA Compliance and Computer Network Support 

John A Zanazzi


There are many different IT vendors and compliance experts that say they will help your dental practice to move towards HIPAA compliance. Most of these vendors charge a premium price tag but do not understand the Privacy and Administrative areas of HIPAA.  Or if they do they don’t understand the IT part of your network. When done correctly, HIPAA compliance should not be any more expensive than managed service support. Because compliance risk actions are added before any network changes, you will have lessened risk of a privacy breach or ransomware with the result HIPAA compliance.  And your network runs better. This Lecture will help you choose the correct HIT consultant at the right price without comprising HIPAA compliance or network performance. Remember it is possible for your network to be HIPAA compliant at a reasonable cost.


In this lecture you will learn:
•   11 Inaccurate Ways Dentists believe they are complying with HIPAA
•   The 10 Most common HIPAA violations 
•   10 Myths of a Security Risk Analysis

John A Zanazzi has worked in the computer industry and Medical Health Information Technology for 23 years. John has an AAS in Networking System Administration from Mesa Community College, and an AAS in Cisco Technology from Gateway Community College. John also has a bachelor’s degree in CIS from Excelsior College and a Master’s Degree from Northern Arizona University. John has been a computer instructor for the past 14 years for the Maricopa Community College District and was the HIT director at the college. He is the author of the book, The Smart Dentist's Guide to HIPAA and Computer Network Support (on amazon) and he has authored a Computer security class for the HIT program at UCSD.

Obtain Information from the Patient
Communicate Insurance Benefits to Patients
