Dental Oasis, (Inku & Myung Dental Inc.), an Inglewood, CA-based dentistry practice, has recently been confirmed as having implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program by Compliancy Group.
Dental practices are classified as covered entities under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and as such must comply with the federally mandated standards of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Omnibus, and Breach Notification Rules.
HIPAA is concerned with restricting certain disclosures of protected health information (PHI) and ensuring the privacy and security of PHI. PHI is any demographic healthcare-related information that can be used to identify a patient.
Dental Oasis is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of sensitive data. To make sure that no requirement of HIPAA had been overlooked, Dental Oasis chose to follow Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA compliance methodology, which includes a 6-Stage HIPAA risk analysis and remediation process, with all compliance efforts tracked using Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance software solution – The Guard.
After completing that process, the good faith effort of Dental Oasis to achieve HIPAA compliance was assessed by Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance experts and the practice was determined to be fully compliant with all appropriate provisions of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and the HITECH Act, and Dental Oasis was awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates to current and future patients of Dental Oasis, that the practice is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of PHI.
