PROTECT EHR ~ Formed with one specific purpose in mind: To take MANDATORY responsibilities off of the shoulders of practices of all kinds and do it at a pricing level that makes it affordable for even the smallest solo practice.
Today, more than at any time before, practices of all kinds are faced with an increasing number of regulatory requirements but you’re also facing constantly diminishing reimbursements from both government programs and private payers.
The HIPAA Security Rule has been often referred to as an “unenforced paper tiger” but with the advent of Meaningful Use, the HITEC Act and now the Omnibus rule, that is rapidly changing.
By now, every Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, Physician’s Assistant, Practice Manager, Nurse and Medical Assistant should know about the Rules and Acts shown above. HOWEVER, it is what is NOT understood about these rules that can make this website very important to you.
Both civil and financial penalties have been greatly increased for unauthorized disclosure of Protected Health Information and if that happens, the practice must be able to prove that it had documented policies and procedures already in place in an attempt to prevent this from happening.
Protect EHR provides three services that can help to protect your practice from possible liabilities.
All three services are based on mandatory federal and/or state requirements.
