Health care providers seek our guidance for a range of issues relating to HIPAA compliance, e-Health and technology, and privacy practices.
We provide our clients with practical strategies for obtaining and maintaining HIPAA compliance, addressing the host of issues at hand such as privacy, security, national provider identifier, insurance portability, and employee benefits.
The spectrum of services provided related to HIPAA can be tailored for your organization’s specific needs. Most often, clients seek our assistance with assessing current HIPAA compliance, developing policies and procedures, drafting agreements, providing staff and executive level education, and managing ongoing compliance.
Telemedicine and other e-health strategies are rapidly becoming the norm in today’s health care environment. To meet these challenges – and opportunities – head on, we regularly counsel health care providers on the protocols and systems that need to be in place to maintain privacy and security throughout the system. We also provide advice relating to operational issues involving electronic health records and health information, health related web sites, software licensing agreements, and the delivery of services through telemedicine.
