  • Risk management
  • Meeting all regulatory and legal requirements, such as HIPAA patient privacy and security requirements and the anti-kickback statute
  • State insurance laws
  • Reimbursement issues
  • Staff privileges and expectations
  • Professional liability requirements
  • Confidentiality standards
  • Advance directives
  • EMTALA transfers
  • Anti-discrimination and accessibility matters
  • Informed consent
