Having already conducted four seminars across Texas, Star Compliance Services is working to reach out to more practitioners who are concerned about the evolving regulatory environment.
The company offers full-day events geared toward healthcare providers who want to learn more about federal and state regulations, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) rules, changes to Medicare and Medicaid, and other related issues that affects day-to-day operations.
Leading each seminar is attorney and chief compliance officer, Gregory Ewing, a recognized expert in healthcare compliance training.
Ewing has 17 years of firsthand experience in healthcare technology, privacy and security law and regulatory compliance. His credentials include a Master of Public Health from Harvard, among many others.
Ewing said: "We developed our seminars with all providers in mind, especially smaller ones.
"These providers often feel the weight of compliance issues more so than large organizations. Small providers rarely have the resources and scalability to adapt to stringent, constantly shifting government regulations. A minor non-compliance issue has the potential to utterly sink an otherwise thriving practice."
Ewing concedes that a dedicated, in-house compliance officer is simply out of reach for most independent healthcare providers. That fact spurred on the creation of Star Compliance Services, which today offers a means to get fully up to speed with all current health care regulations.
