In a medical practice, physicians, administrators, managers, and other staff may all be responsible for maintaining compliance with state and federal laws and regulations. The Texas Medical Association offers several resources, tools, and even discounts on compliance services to help keep your practice compliant.
Your entire team has access to these benefits, as long as the physicians in your practice are TMA members. Here are just a few to explore:
- HIPAA Resource Center (information on all things HIPAA privacy and security)
- Security Risk Assessment Tool by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology
(a free HIPAA security compliance and risk assessment tool)
- DocbookMD (HIPAA-compliant messaging for your entire health care team)
Check the TMA website for more compliance tools like these, or for tips to future-proof your practice.
Want your entire staff to be in the know? Share this resource center with your practice manager(s). Practice staff can create an account to get member-only access to essential tools and information.
