New Healthcare Compliance Business RiskShield Tools, LLC Helps Healthcare Providers Identify Risk and Improve Regulatory Compliance
Healthcare providers and healthcare business owners can now alleviate the burden of ensuring regulatory compliance in house using an innovative new platform that was designed by a team with decades of combined experience advising on healthcare business operations and Federal OIG compliance
"Providers and business owners must not only create a compliance program that includes effective policies and procedures but also have the responsibility of educating staff, self-auditing, staying abreast of regulatory updates, re-educating staff and somehow also delivering care!" says co-founder and Chief Operating Officer Autumn Piccolo. "We are the first company focused on providing full spectrum, custom compliance programs that roll HIPAA requirements, clinical documentation improvement, OIG compliance requirements, and much more into one customized solution." As one of the company's taglines go, "Because One Size Fits None."
Although RiskShield Tools is a new company, its founders have well-established track records in the healthcare industry. Both Bond and Piccolo have extensive business operations experience, including healthcare operations, accreditation and compliance practice. With well honed skills in revenue cycle reform, Bond successfully turned non-profitable providers into lucrative businesses in the home health industry. "It is a mistake when providers liken compliance to insurance; focusing solely on it as a sunk cost. Revenue is the result of compliance and compliance is the key to getting a return on the investment you made in your business."
