As healthcare providers, you are faced with a complex set of compliance requirements related to clinical care, operations and electronic health record management. You also need to be prepared for Medicare and Medicaid audits such as the RAC, MIC, and ZPIC.
From the Joint Commission to HIPAA to HITECH and others, maintaining compliance is a critical component to operating a successful practice.
ACP's Center for Practice Improvement & Innovation (CPII) is here to be a resource to you and your office staff. This section on regulatory compliance is designed to arm you with the latest information and resources to ensure you are informed and prepared.
In January, 2013, the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) adopted the HIPAA Omnibus rules which revised existing privacy, security and breach notification. These rules were the result of requirements created under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. The compliance date for most of the rules was September 23, 2013. All covered physician practices should review and revise HIPAA policies and procedures to implement these new requirements.
