SOMERSET, NJ, Dec. 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MTBC recently concluded its second annual Compliance Week. The purpose of this event was to refresh and reinforce the commitment of the company and its employees to compliance with the many laws and regulations which govern the healthcare industry, chief among them the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
"Compliance Week - Don't be the Weakest Link" was the motto for this year. General Counsel Christine Salimbene explained: "The standard operating procedures and company policies that MTBC has in place, serve to ensure that we are compliant with all applicable federal and state laws, rules and regulations. But, as any compliance officer will tell you, even the most finely crafted SOPs will fall short, unless implemented by knowledgeable, diligent and accountable employees."
The compliance team organized a variety of informative and intuitive initiatives including "Compliance Munchies" - messages attached to cookie boxes and packets of chips, compliance related comics and banners were posted on MTBC's Employee Web-portal and internal notice boards, desktop wallpapers centered on compliance related themes were applied and special editions of Insight- the company's internal newsletter- were issued. Small video clips titled "90 Seconds of Compliance" were also prepared and embedded in the newsletter and on the employee website.
"MTBC relies on state-of-the-art technology and efficient business practices to provide its clients with a cost effective, fully integrated, end-to-end EHR, practice and revenue cycle management solution." said Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, David Rosenblum.
"With the growing popularity of web-based EMR and PM/RCM solutions, more and more PHI is residing 'in the cloud'. So it's all the more important to establish an environment that promotes a business culture centered on compliance" commented MTBC's President Stephen Snyder.
