HDM Achieves HBMA Compliance Reaccreditation

Healthcare Data Management, Inc. believes in fostering a culture of compliance and seeks to maintain inscrutable compliance plans, records, and training. Our goal is to not only meet official government regulations, but to truly protect the patients that our clients entrust us to serve.
A key piece of our compliance journey is through the HBMA Compliance Accreditation program. HDM has maintained Compliance Accreditation since enrolling with the program in 2020. This program is designed to assess compliance with a range of federal healthcare industry regulations, including provisions to protect patient privacy under HIPAA, promote cybersecurity, and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse in medical billing.

The HBMA Compliance Accreditation Program is the result of the RCM industry coming together within HBMA to establish a process to independently assess the participating company’s program to fulfill its obligation to meet regulatory requirements. The HBMA Compliance Accreditation Program assesses compliance with HIPAA and with Health and Human Service Office of Inspector General compliance standards on fraud, waste and abuse; the Stark Law, which is designed to prevent conflicts of interest by medical providers in their prescribed patient care; federal Anti-kickback law; and the OIG work plan.

The assessment under the HBMA Compliance Accreditation Program includes a comprehensive evaluation of the policies and practices of RCM companies with respect to employee training; security risks, including the security of confidential patient health information; documentation storage and handling; practices to promote compliance with federal regulations; disaster and emergency preparedness plans; and human resources practices, including background check procedures and onboarding.
