ChiroCode has proudly served chiropractic for more than 30 years and continues to work to bring the most necessary, affordable, and user friendly products and services to practices. Increased regulation has hindered practices by creating uncertainty around the nature of guidelines and the expensive penalties that arise from non-compliance with these guidelines (including audits, HIPAA, and others). While practice owners and providers would love nothing more than to focus on their patients and practice growth, there are other responsibilities to the practice that must not be overlooked.
Advancements in technology, enforcement of billing and documentation guidelines, and increasing risks to protected information must all be appropriately managed in the daily operations of health care facilities. While most practices understand the necessity of appropriately implementing policies and procedures to minimize risk and adhere to guidelines, practices have struggled to properly implement these guidelines due to:
- Time available
- Expense to learn and incorporate compliance guidelines
- Uncertainty of where to learn the need-to- know information, access to the materials needed, and/or training and implementation support.
While bits and pieces of compliance guidelines can be found in many places, it is difficult to find all the information you need in one place. This leaves many practices with incomplete compliance programs and thus a heightened risk of audits/investigations of various types, penalties and cash flow reduction, and more.
With this in mind, ChiroCode has established a strategic partnership with Chiropractic Compliance Solutions who has also taken into consideration the aforementioned obstacles faced by practices. Chiropractic Compliance Solutions brings to you trained and certified professionals that have been "in the trenches" facing the same questions and obstacles that many practices are facing.
Chiropractic Compliance Solutions (CCS) offers various auditing and compliance related programs and services that are in high demand for health care practices. Just a couple of these valuable services/programs include:
Online Compliance Training:
Module based online training that allows you to work at your own pace! Module lessons are under 30 minutes to allow ease of time management and implementation. Modules come complete with action steps, editable policy and procedure samples, as well as the forms necessary for each lesson. All this and more is available to practices including HelpDesk support with CCS professionals.
Security Risk Assessment Tool:
Per the HIPAA Security requirements, as well as Meaningful Use requirements, practices must perform a Security Risk at a minimum of once per year. This very easy to navigate tool provides mini lessons for training and understanding each topic, policy and procedure templates, necessary forms, help desk support, reporting mechanism for compliance records and accountability, and more.
With more products and services available as well as a track record for providing excellent service, we are excited to introduce the ChiroCode family to Chiropractic Compliance Solutions! Thanks to the design of CCS programs and services, practices are more easily able to time manage, learn what's necessary AND have the materials needed, as well as have the support you've been needing, all very affordably.
