Free Resources from PCT for Group Practices
These are all free trainings and resources that represent components and aspects of the PCT Way.
These free resources are a useful, practical taste of the PCT Way. They do not comprise the PCT Way in it’s entirety. HIPAA compliance and practice optimization is a multistep process and the PCT Way is a comprehensive approach to optimization and HIPAA compliance.
Using The Resources
Please be aware that none of these documents represent a replacement for legal consultation and are not given as consultation of any kind. It is your responsibility to use them appropriately and to know when they are not appropriate for your practice or for any of your clients.
All of them require some study to use properly. I have tried to provide some guidance for the use of each document. Once again, however, that is not a replacement for legal advice or consultation. Enjoy in good health!
