    Behavioral Health Compliance: Making It Easy for Providers and Agencies

    in Psychology

    HIPAA, HITECH, Omnibus,  PCI regulations - these are words that can strike fear into the heart of any Behavioral Health organization.  They don't need to as we found after speaking with our guest today on Mental Health News Radio.  We sat down with Marc Haskelson, the President and CEO of Compliancy Group, to find out how easy compliance can be.


    Read the full article HERE.


    What is the difference between HIPAA and Meaningful  Use (MU) ?


    Do I have to attest for Meaningful Use?  What If I don’t attest?


    Who is considered a Vendor or a Business Associate?


    I am now accepting Medicare, does that put me at a higher risk for an audit just like everyone else?


    If I completed a Risk Assessment last year, do I have to do it again this year?


    Is there an insurance policy available that helps an entity with HIPAA  fines?


    What triggers an audit?  How do they know that they should audit you?


    Has your software solution ever been involved where an actual audit was being done by either CMS or OCR?


    If an EHR vendor or billing agency, as an example, are not following HIPAA compliance where can one go to report these actions?

    HEALTH MEDIA NOW-DR. KAJIKI-HOW TO MAINTAIN GOOD THYROID HEALTH!

    in Health

    Please join us this Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. PST and 7:00 p.m. EST for a live show with host Denise Messenger.  Our special guest is Dr Gil Kajiki.  He is the founder of the Valley Thyroid Institute. He graduated from the Pasadena College of Chiropractic and has been a chiropractor for 30 years. The main focus of his practice is thyroid and Auto Immune conditions.  
    Through working with his patients he developed the Kajiki Protocol for determining thyroid and autoimmune issues with a particular concentration on Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.  He offers his patients answers and protocols to improve thyroid function and overall health.
    With his roots in chiropractic-biophysics, Dr. Kajiki was busy helping patients in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California with their spinal structural corrective care when his wife became ill with what at first appeared to be Epstein Barr.
    As he watched his wife’s health deteriorate under the care of several doctors, Dr. Kajiki began a relentless search for answers to why his healthy wife could become so ill and yet no one seemed to know how to care for her. After more than two years of tests, medication, B12 shots, and finally hospitalization, it was her husband and not her medical provider who came to her rescue.
    After countless hours of study, consultation with colleagues, and testing, Dr. Kajiki diagnosed his wife with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition that attacks the thyroid. He spent the next several months treating her autoimmune condition through natural supplements, lifestyle modifications, and dietary changes. She is now symptom free and doesn’t take any thyroid medication.  Dr. Kajiki has an educational 5 DVD series of self-help for patients with chronic thyroid problems called “The Thyroid Mystery Solved”.  You asked for it and we deliver!
