We Know Your Business, Your Needs and Understand Law

We have been in health care for a long time – Robert in 1984 as a Hospital Administrator and Paul in 1996 with the passage of HIPAA – and we know first hand that most providers are committed to quality care and compliance with the rules. But what happens if a provider is confronted with rules or regulations that are difficult to understand, costly, and almost impossible to comply with (even without regard to the expense)? The lack of any reasonable solution weighed on us and we simply couldn’t let it go. Was it possible, we kept asking, that such a fundamental obligation could be so difficult to comply with? Well, as you may have guessed, we never found a solution to the problem, so we went ahead and created one! As so let us welcome you to Exclusion Screening, LLC.
