At one point in all our lives, we made the choice to become optometrists, eagerly committing ourselves to the rigors of years of post-graduate education and training that lay before us. Now, as practicing professionals charged with the visual health of deserving patients who look to us for guidance and care, we must make another commitment. We must commit ourselves to being the best optometrists we can possibly be, ceaselessly improving not only our knowledge and skills, but improving our management of all the attendant business, financial and pragmatic requirements of our profession, as well. In a word, we endeavor to continue to excel.

HIPAA Compliance
"HIPAA Compliant Patient Communications: How to communicate with your patients without violating HIPAA"
Tuesday, April 2, 2 PM EST/11 AM PST

Average optometry practices will communicate with dozens of patients and vendors on any given day. With emails being sent and phone calls being made in the hundreds, the risk of accidentally disclosing information or being targeted for a ransomware attack is constantly growing. With data breaches and HIPAA violations making headlines day after day, your practice can't afford to be non-compliant. But how do you ensure that your communication efforts aren't going to result in a data breach or HIPAA violation without shutting down your operations?

In this webinar we will help you understand how to communicate, whether by e-mail, social media, snail mail, or marketing communications-and how to keep your sensitive health care data safe while you do!
