Jeffrey L. Cohen, board-certified founder of the Delray Beach based Florida Healthcare Law Firm, has started a new venture. Launched earlier this year, RiskShield Tools is a platform created by attorneys and leading industry professionals to make compliance easier for healthcare professionals and businesses. The firm can assist laboratories, addiction treatment facilities, physician practices, home health providers, pharmacies and hospice.

And just like any other competent healthcare pro, RiskShield Tools is set up to diagnose, prescribe and treat. The diagnostic tool, delivered via the website, is the first guided self-assessment survey of its kind and is designed to help healthcare providers determine whether their business complies with important healthcare laws. Once the survey is completed, the RiskShield Tools team provides an in-depth, onsite assessment and generates a comprehensive report with prioritized action items. "You don’t just get a plan that sits on a shelf," states Mr. Cohen. "Instead, you’ll receive specific guidance regarding action to take and be reminded to schedule regular visits with our compliance team, who are trained to help you stay on track." The treatment plan includes crucial support if a provider is audited or investigated, including:

·         Audit Notice Response

·         Audit Risk Analysis

·         On Site Representation

·         Policies & Procedures Development

·         Corrective Action Plan Implementation

RiskShield Tools also offers an ever expanding Compliance Training Library and five star support.

"Healthcare regulatory compliance is often performed by consultants who are not lawyers," states Mr. Cohen. "This can create tension between the professionals, since they may see the same issue differently. The best possible legal and regulatory compliance product for a healthcare client is one that blends expert consulting services with expert healthcare legal compliance. That's why I started RiskShield Tools."

A free guided self assessment is available online that allows healthcare professionals to anonymously answer a few questions and determine where they stand. Click http://riskshieldtools.com/surveys/ to get started.
