Automatic Rules Compliance
The AdvancedMD cloud system helps you stay ahead of all current and future HIPAA rules, regulatory requirements, and implementation deadlines. Our unique cloud platform allows us to upgrade all users at once, so you will never have to worry about a site visit or software install. Compared to client/server systems, the AdvancedMD cloud gives you a more straightforward and effortless way to stay on top of compliance-related issues.
Our experts thoroughly understand all relevant HIPAA regulations and relationships, and ensure that our systems and partnerships are fully compliant ahead of schedule. Updates are automatic and free – there’s no software to download, nothing to upgrade or buy. Included are future standards being phased in, such as ANSI 5010 and ICD-10. We also offer training and educational materials to assist you in keeping your practice on top of the latest changes.
Our Commitment to Our Clients
Our relationship with our clients from a regulatory standpoint as defined by HIPAA is that of Business Associate – a role we take extremely seriously. As such, we consider our prime responsibilities to include:
- Maintain a thorough understanding of HIPAA regulations and related timelines
- Provide software and services that help clients comply with their HIPAA obligations
- Ensure that our end-to-end systems and processes are compliant with HIPAA regulations and relationships, including our agents and business partners’ systems
- Maintain physical security of your data with automatic hassle-free backup
This commitment is reinforced through a Business Associate Agreement that is included as a standard part of our Terms of Service for all clients.
ANSI 5010 Transactions
AdvancedMD is working closely with our clearinghouse and other partners to ensure our software and end-to-end systems are fully compliant with this new regulation as it is phased in over a two year period.
Smooth ICD-10 Migration
As this new code set is implemented in preparation for an October 1, 2013 deadline, AdvancedMD automatically integrates all ICD-10 codes directly into the encounter review screen of our online medical billing and clinical software. We also provide the requisite two-year overlapping “mapping” to old ICD-9 codes to ease the transition and keep you in complete compliance.
