HIPAA and OSHA Evaluation and Compliance Services

A HIPAA breach can trigger an audit and result in substantial fines and legal fees if your practice is not in compliance. Likewise, an employee injury can hurt staff morale, lead to an expensive lawsuit, and increase insurance premiums. Let our consultants assist your practice in establishing active and ongoing compliance programs that meet state and federal standards and help mitigate breach and injury issues. We’ll work with your team step-by-step to create and implement comprehensive compliance strategies.
