Do you include an audit trail with your month end reports? Does your security officer conduct the proper exit protocol when a team member leaves your practice? Do you know what “rights” your patients have when requesting a records release? Federal mandates require ongoing training, annual risk analysis and updates. Attend this course to make sure your office is compliant and safe (and that you have added COVID protocols to your written policies and procedures!).
