Medical Risk Institute (MRI), a national specialty EMR/HIPAA & HITECH counsel and employee training firm serving the healthcare community, has launched MRI Resources, a monthly newsletter and online information portal designed to help subscribing healthcare providers reduce their risk of exposure from electronic medical records (EMR) systems, and comply with the ‘final’ HIPAA/ HITECH rules and regulations released by the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services earlier this year.

MRI Resources (briefings.medriskinstitute.com) monthly newsletter features timely commentary on the issues shaping HIPAA/HITECH compliance, answers to questions ‘Frequently Asked’ by physicians and healthcare administrators, and monthly online chats enabling subscribers to gain clarity on issues via real-time dialogue with editorial staff. Subscribers also gain access to past articles written by MRI Resources editors, as well as contributions from peer experts on a variety of important topics.

“The healthcare community’s rapid and widespread transition to EMR has created steep learning curve-related uncertainties and vulnerabilities,” said MRI Founder and President Michael Sacopulos, JD. “As for HIPAA and HITECH, the rise in random privacy audits and staggering new penalties for non-compliers clearly illustrate the federal government’s message to medical practices is ‘act now or pay later.”

Sacopulos, a 20-year veteran in medical malpractice defense, has worked to develop a platform within MRI to address EMR, HIPAA and HITECH concerns at every level. The program has been designed to help providers understand everything from meaningful use and patient-chart interaction to EMR software review and HIPPA compliance. The aforementioned includes in-depth audits and face-to-face instruction by expert legal analysts and trained professional communicators.

“We have created a turnkey program to help alleviate concerns both near and long-term for medical groups and hospitals of all sizes,” said Sacopulos.
