As dental practices embrace diverse administrative roles, compliance becomes increasingly important in recent times. Dental practice owners must be aware of the importance of maintaining compliance, whether staying up to date on labor laws, such as HIPAA regulations, documentation standards, or other compliance-related issues.
But how to keep up with all compliance issues to not end up patients? Here’s how:
Integrate a seamless compliance software in your dental practice:
There is a variety of software available to assist with compliance in several areas. Products such as DSO Compliance Software can help comply with HIPAA standards of your dental practice.
So, always keep in mind that without a compliance process in a practice, it can cost more than these services cost. Within a dental practice, staff, dentists, and dental practice owners can be held liable in several ways for infractions of noncompliance.
Being proactive is better than being reactive when it comes to compliance.
Never forget patient compliance
Another area of compliance that often is forgotten by dental practice owners is – patient compliance. Dental practice owners may recommend treatment for patients and, at times, patients may give a false acceptance of the dental services.
A false acceptance may happen when the patient agrees to treatments and schedules their appointment but cancels before their appointment without a reasonable explanation. The patient may say yes in person while in the practice but then later decides she/he doesn’t really want to do the treatment, and thus the last-minute cancellation or no-shows.
Note: Compliance is a multifaceted issue that dental practices need to stay on top of, from patient compliance to operational compliance. Yes, you heard that right! Patients compliance can cost dental practice owners not only monetarily but also in-patient confidence.
