Summary

House Bill 300, which was adopted in the 2011 legislative session and became effective September 1, 2012, creates more stringent rules for the handling of protected health information. One provision requires dentists and their staff to receive training on federal and state privacy laws within 60 days of implementation, within 60 days of employment, and every two years thereafter. To fulfill that requirement, this class will review the Texas Medical Privacy Act, relevant provisions in the Texas Dental Practice Act, as well as federal HIPAA requirements, including HITECH, and discuss the most common violations found in the typical dental office.

This course can be viewed by the entire office. The individual registered for this program will receive an attendance certificate reflecting 1.0 Practice Management credits from the Academy of General Dentistry. Your certificate will come with a sign-up sheet for any additional staff members to verify their attendance. The sign-up sheet also acts as the CE certificate for your entire office. Please make copies as needed. You will need to keep one sign-in sheet with all signatures on file to satisfy HB300 training requirements. If any additional dentists in your office who viewed the program need AGD credit, please contact Texas AGD.

At the end of the program, there is a brief knowledge assessment which you will have to complete successfully to obtain AGD credit. When you are finished watching the video, press the complete tab to move forward to the assessment.

You will find a PDF of the Program Materials that you can save to your computer and/or print out under the "Other Resources" tab when you are logged in to the video player.
