Are you in compliance with Medicare, HIPAA, OSHA, and the vast number of other federal and state laws that apply to your practice?  How can a small business owner keep up with it all?  If you are unsure where you stand with health law compliance, we can help you assess what you need.  We also offer some of our recorded webinars on our on-line training page on compliance topics.  Practice Management Network Members receive regular compliance updates and policy/procedure templates to keep them complaint and other resources on our Members only page.

We offer the following compliance materials for your information:

Did you know amendments were made to HIPAA in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009?  Time to change your Notice of Privacy Practices, update your Business Associate Agreements, make sure you are in compliance with the Security Rule and develop your security breach notification policies and procedures.  Health care providers are already supposed to be in compliance with the new law (the HITECH Act).  We offer resources below to assist you in your compliance efforts.  Additional information and training resources are available to Practice Management Network Members on our Members only page and on our on-line training page.
