With the wide array of legal and regulatory requirements physician offices
face each day, compliance can be challenging. And with the constant changes tied to healthcare reform, it isn't getting any easier for practices to keep up with the rules.
Our healthcare consultants are former compliance officers
with years of experience in medical documentation and coding, auditing, medicare/medicaid, and key government laws and regulations. They're ready to help you address the challenges that are
unique to your office.
Healthcare Compliance Risk Assessments
Our onsite compliance risk assessments can be used to help identify deficiencies
in your current medical compliance with key areas specific to physician practices. This
may include areas such as:
- Medical documentation and coding
- Auditing / monitoring practices
- Medicare compliance and Medicaid compliance requirements
- Healthcare compliance with key laws and regulations such as HIPAA, EMTALA, CLIA and
Compliance Program Implementation
Don’t have a medical compliance program yet? Or have you started but are just not sure
how to make it all come together? The compliance program implementation service
is just what you need. Working with you to identify your individual needs, we
will help tailor a compliance program for your office that will meet the seven
elements outlined by the Office of Inspector General.
Training & Education
To ensure your compliance program is successful, physicians and staff members
need regular training and education. It’s very easy to forget compliance because
it’s “out of sight, out of mind.” Training should address key compliance issues
such as the False Claims Act, Anti-kickback Statute, and Stark Laws. Training
should also address individual practice risks such as billing, sales and marketing
activities, HIPAA, CLIA, OSHA, documentation, and coding. Our experienced team
can work with you to provide specialized training geared toward your practice,
or general training that can be offered in a variety of formats such as in-person,
web-based, or webinar.
