This course will explain responsibilities and liabilities in a medical office. Review numerous case examples and receive guidance on compliant patient communication, reporting a breach and more.
Don't get caught off-guard when it comes to compliance. Your staff needs proper education and guidance for how to avoid risk and protect the practice. Examples of cautionary areas: billing for claims with no assignment of benefits on file, selling a photocopier without wiping patient data stored in memory, or listing employees as salaried to avoid paying overtime wages.
