Healthcareis one of themost regulated industriesin the United States, makinghealthcarecompliance a crucial and growing field for compliance professionals. Healthcare compliance professionalsare needed to help clinical facilities and organizations address the ever-growing government regulations that set the requirements and standards from billing, coding, drug administration to information sharing and data protection. These regulations ensure quality patient care, prevent fraud, protect healthcare staff and improve the efficiency and accuracy of patient information.Among many rules and regulations, one of the most critical compliance requirements for a healthcare organization is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). HIPAA is a federal law that required the creation of national standards to protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient's consent or knowledge.

IRMC Group bridgesthe gap in the ever-complex regulatory environment for the healthcare clients that it serves with professional services specializing in HIPAA compliance, IT Risk Management, Operational Compliance, Security, Project Management,and Internal Audit. What makes IRMC Group unique from the other consulting firms providing similar services is their deep specialization in the healthcare industry.
