Wellesley, MA. (PRWEB) July 09, 2012
MedSafe, “The Total Compliance Solution” and the Florida Orthopaedic Society have teamed up to bring better healthcare compliance to members of the Florida Orthopaedic Society. Florida Orthopaedic Society Executive Director, Fraser Cobbe, is excited to announce this partnership. “We are thrilled to have teamed up with MedSafe who has over 20 years experience in the healthcare compliance industry. This collaboration will help our members to better understand healthcare compliance issues and ensure a safer environment for their staff and patients.”
Healthcare compliance has become critical to all physician practices, as government regulations have become stricter. With the conversion of paper medical records to electronic recordkeeping, the federal government has mandated that privacy and security of these records be maintained. In addition privacy regulations, employers are required to provide safe working environments for healthcare workers, and the regulations issued by OSHA can be daunting. The strict billing and coding requirements of Medicare and Medicaid are additional burdens for healthcare professionals. Understanding the regulations and complying with the rules can be overwhelming.
“Practice administrators are knee deep in healthcare regulations,” states Wiks Moffat, President of MedSafe. “This partnership provides a terrific opportunity for us to assist the Florida Orthopaedic Society’s members navigate the changing healthcare regulatory compliance environment.”
These two groups recently collaborated on a local project in Laurel, Florida. Members of MedSafe’s executive team helped build a handicap-accessible playground and multi-generational exercise pods along a play trail at Laurel Park. Florida Orthopaedic Society and local businesses and associations created this project as part of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ national focus on lowering the rate of childhood obesity.
