Regulatory and Compliance Overview

Today's complex and challenging health care environment requires that physicians and practices pay particularly close attention to an ever-evolving compilation of regulatory and compliance issues and regulations. The practice of medicine has changed dramatically over the past few years and that trend is not likely to stop - or even slow - in the coming years. BSM consultants and colleagues have developed a number of tools and resources that can help you stay abreast of the continuing change occurring in the regulatory and compliance world. All tools and resources in this section are included with your annual membership to BSM Connection®.

Examples of tools and resources found in this section include:
