This shift to a SaaS (Software as a Service) delivery model for CRM and sales platforms can leave your organization exposed for reputational damage and financial penalties if data is left unsecure and a security breach occurs. With the added complexity of safeguarding protected health information, it’s critical that you select a product that meets the security protocols your Information Security Officer requires in order to ensure HIPAA compliance and data security.

With Illinois, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, and Michigan slated for the pilot program, many worry how they will withstand a program that mandates them to submit to a pre-claim review process.

HCAF 2016 Annual Conference: Know Before You Go

Posted by Jason Lewallen on July 25, 2016

 

Before I tell you about the conference, I want to give you a true, “know before you go” tip. The Renaissance Orlando is fantastic beyond just visiting the tourist sights.
