Your reception area is a HIPAA nightmare just waiting to happen. So, you need to choose.
Your front desk can either be a barrier against HIPAA complaints and violations and the massive penalties that accompany them, or it can be the cause.
The number one driver of HIPAA audits is patient complaints. All it takes is one patient to feel like his or her personal information has been mistreated or overheard and you could have an auditor on your doorstep.
The big issue isn’t that one patient complained. It’s that once at your front desk, HIPAA auditors can uncover other violations and apply them across the board. This is where fines and penalties can reach the millions.
You need a plan of attack, and HIPAA practice expert, Tracy Bird, FACMPE, CPC, CPMA, CEMC, CPC-I, can help. On Thursday, July 16th at 1pm ET, during a 60-minute online training, she will tell you EXACTLY how to protect your front desk (and your practice) from violating HIPAA regulations and getting hit with exorbitant penalties.
