Welcome solo and group practice owners! We are Liath Dalton and Evan Dumas, your co-hosts of Group Practice Tech.

In this episode, we’re talking about the security standards that go along with accepting credit cards in your therapy practice.

We discuss PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliance and where it is applicable; what payment processors handle; documentation; not handling or storing the full payment information for clients; the different types of security required for HIPAA compliance vs PCI compliance; why you don’t need a BAA with your payment processor; and the intersection of compliance components for PCI and for HIPAA.
