Dr. Jeff is a recognized expert in compliance requirements related to medical necessity, EHR Incentive Program (meaningful use), and the HIPAA, with several national speaking credits and publications to his name. His career spans private chiropractic practice, meaningful use consulting, and software product management for three healthcare technology companies.
HIPAA compliance is hard because it's confusing and takes too much time to figure out on one's own. Historically, offices were left with two options: pay high fees to HIPAA "experts" or continue being non-compliant and hope for the best (a.k.a. bury head in sand).
We believe HIPAAmate software is the affordable third option.
It all started with Dr. Jeff Brown's experience as a practicing provider searching for help with HIPAA compliance. Dr. Brown was disappointed with useless $500 HIPAA manuals, seminars, and the high fees consultants were charging to help offices become compliant. He then looked for software alternatives.
Unfortunately, Dr. Brown only found HIPAA software vendors using a consulting pricing model. Meaning, they were charging steep consulting fees as if their service required the same level of human interaction. But software is different. Not only should it enable your office to do tasks faster and easier, it should have a lower price tag because software can simultaneously service hundreds of clients, whereas a consultant cannot.
From an efficiency perspective, our software platform uses the latest technology and back-end services which allows us to operate, maintain, and scale with far less expense than traditional software development.
There are other business expenses to consider, such as software programming, marketing, and customer support. To keep these costs under control, our talented founders do the lion's share of day-to-day activities instead of delegating work to employees or contractors, all in an effort to realize savings.
When you put all the above pieces together, a picture emerges illustrating how we do it—fix your HIPAA compliance problem at a great price!
