The Federal Trade Commission has reached a settlement with Henry Schein Practice Solutions, Inc., a Utah corporation that makes office management software for dental practices, over allegations that Henry Schein misled customers about the level of encryption it used to protect patient data.  The FTC alleged that Henry Schein falsely advertised to dentists that its Dentrix G5 database software used “industry-standard encryption” and met HIPAA’s security requirements, when in reality the software employed a more vulnerable encryption algorithm.  The company promised to cease making misrepresentations about its software and will pay $250,000.
