HIPAA, Patient and "I Can Sleep at Night" Compliance
Dentrix Enterprise was designed from the ground up with health care security in
mind. It is fully HIPAA compliant and includes data, employee security and reporting
features that help you stay confident in your compliance.
Dentrix Enterprise has powerful, yet flexible security options that let you decide
how you will secure your organization’s operations. Password protection and user
rights can be assigned for more than 200 practice functions. A comprehensive audit
trail tracks who edited what and when, as well as other pertinent data necessary
to ensure the integrity of your data and finances.
With all transactions happening real time on one main server, management can have
instant access to every user’s usage of the system. Each user is assigned one “user
sign-in” no matter how many locations this user may work at, allowing you to easily
audit user activity and restrict a user’s features by location. The secure passwords
in Dentrix Enterprise provide higher levels of complexity for user password acceptance,
and users are locked out after a predetermined number of failed login attempts.
Patient privacy requests allow you to flag patients who do not accept phone calls
or mail solicitations and automatically remove them from call and mail lists.
Limited Access to Data
High-level security for reports allows you to make staff responsible for running
specific reports without giving them access to all your data. For example, you may
give a doctor the ability to run a production report for his/her production only.
If a user asks for a production report of “all providers” they will only have access
to provider data they are allowed to see. This is the same for running reports for
Backup Data Security
With only one database you only need to do one nightly backup. No need to worry
if 15 locations are properly maintaining and backing up their data. With only one
database and one backup you don’t have to worry about people walking away without
a system backup.
Secure passwords allow you to enable exactly the amount of security you need, exactly
where you need it without creating undue burden in areas where tight security measures
aren’t required. You can assign individual and group passwords at any level—from
an individual workstation to the entire system.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), includes protective
guidelines for the confidentiality of healthcare information, containing provisions
that spell out the procedures for maintaining privacy and security of this information.
The law also mandates uniform standards and formats for electronic transmission
of health information and code sets in connection with most routine types of health
transactions (such as claims submission and eligibility for health benefits).
In connection with the aministrative simplification rules that were issued under
HIPAA, four important standards exist:
Standards for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI): National Information
Services (the Henry Schein company that integrates eServices with Dentrix Enterprise)
is compliant with these HIPAA standards.
Standards for Privacy: Dentrix Enterprise is fully compliant with
these HIPAA standards.
Standards for Security: Dentrix Enterprise is fully compliant with
these HIPAA standards.
National Provider Identifier (NPI): The NPI is a unique all numeric
10-digit number that is assigned by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
The NPI replaces all payer-assigned Provider Identifiers, individual and facility,
and is the single provider identifier you use to do business with health plans.
Dentrix Enterprise is compliant with this HIPPA standard.
