According to the Federal Register “OIG considers compliance program guidance to third party medical billing companies particularly important in efforts to combat health care fraud and abuse. Further, because individual billing companies may support a variety of providers with different specialties, they recommend that billing companies coordinate with their provider-clients in establishing compliance responsibilities.

Steele Management, Inc. has on staff an EHR certified Installer and Trainer for AdvancedMD Electronic Healthcare Records Software.
