Compliance

The implementation of healthcare reforms is likely to have an impact on almost every aspect of your business and HIPAA-compliant electronic transactions are just one of these. It is necessary to assess every interface, system and vendor application. These may include disease/care management systems, operational reporting systems, financial reporting systems and even provider contracts. These require trained and experienced healthcare IT professionals.

Experts in healthcare technology at CIITS are ready to take you through the challenging process. Strict regulation of healthcare by both the federal and the state governments is the order of the day. This had led to several improvement programs together known as Healthcare Reform. These address diverse areas of healthcare and are largely enabled by technology.
