Thriving in today’s practice environment means carefully choosing a great set of technical tools and services

You need tech tools to help you do your work, clients to succeed, and the practice to thrive. Because of this, many solo practitioners struggle with things like:

  • Choosing effective services (e.g. EMR, phone, email, marketing, and more!) that work well, meet your HIPAA requirements, and keep costs way down.
  • Understanding what HIPAA, combined with a variety of ethics codes and state laws, actually requires you to do.
  • Determining which specific technical service providers help meet the above-named needs.
