ATLANTA, March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NueMD, in partnership with Total HIPAA, Smartlink Mobile Systems, and Virtru announced today it is hosting a series of webinars on healthcare compliance for small and medium-sized medical practices and billing companies.
Now in its third year, the series is expanding to include information about MACRA reporting requirements and will offer a new perspective on privacy with two new presenters -- Ginny Mahaney of Smartlink Mobile and Rob McDonald of Virtru.
"Moving into 2017, we had a lot of questions about how HIPAA compliance would tie in with the new MACRA legislation," said Jason Karn, Chief Compliance Officer at Total HIPAA. "What we discovered was a veritable mountain of information. That's why we brought on MACRA expert Ginny Mahaney to help us make sense of all these changes."
The first webinar, "MACRA and Your Practice," will be held Thursday, March 16 at 2pm EST and all healthcare professionals are encouraged to attend.
In addition to MACRA, the series will also address the necessary steps to achieve and maintain HIPAA compliance and will focus on HIPAA's role in MACRA reporting, provide guidance on creating a compliance plan, and offer tips for keeping data protected when using electronic devices.
