JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 27, 2000
e-MedSoft.com (AMEX: MED - news), a leading Application Service Provider (ASP) of comprehensive healthcare portal solutions, today announced the Company's first HIPAA Compliance Seminar, which is being held from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Friday, September 29, 2000, at the Company's corporate headquarters in Jacksonville Beach.
Nancy Knauss, Chairperson of the X12N HIPAA Implementation Coordination Group, will moderate the session. Several prestigious healthcare provider organizations will be represented including St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tenn.; SureCare Group Practice in Van Nuys, Calif.; Memorial Medical Center in Savannah, Ga.; Tallahassee Primary Care Associates in Tallahassee, Fla.; and Premier Family Care in Jacksonville, Fla., among others.
e-MedSoft's HIPAA Compliance Seminar has been designed as an educational session, building awareness of HIPAA regulations and its implications for healthcare organizations that maintain or transmit electronic health information.
Specific topics to be addressed at the seminar include: HIPAA timelines; a discussion of HIPAA requirements and how they affect healthcare organizations from an operational, financial, and systems perspective; identification of the resources necessary to promote a structured and seamless transition to an environment that is responsive to HIPAA requirements; and finally, a discussion on how HIPAA serves as an "e-business enabler" by laying the groundwork that helps drive businesses to a faster return on investment.
John F. Andrews, e-MedSoft.com Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "This compliance seminar is just one of the many ways that e-MedSoft is helping companies resolve HIPAA compliance issues. Given that conservative estimates put the cost of HIPAA compliance in the range of $3.8 billion over the next five years, we are well positioned to capture the tremendous opportunity associated with HIPAA compliance, and welcome the opportunity to assist healthcare providers in addressing this complex and time-sensitive national issue."
