Close, Move, Merge Your Practice |Episode #090
Closing or moving a healthcare provider practice takes co-ordination, patience, communication, and documentation.
Once you have made the big decision about closing, moving, or merging your practice and have a general idea about the next step for you, your practice, your employees, and your patient and business records you need to plan the continued administrative, technical, and physical safeguards of the patient health records.
