Do You Know a Healthcare Game Changer?
Veteran S. FL Health Attorney Launches Compliance Business
Jeffrey L. Cohen, board-certified founder of the Delray Beach based Florida Healthcare Law Firm, has started a new venture. Launched earlier this year, RiskShield Tools is a platform created by attorneys and leading industry professionals to make compliance easier for healthcare professionals and businesses. The firm can assist laboratories, addiction treatment facilities, physician practices, home health providers, pharmacies and hospice.

And just like any other competent healthcare pro, RiskShield Tools is set up to diagnose, prescribe and treat. The diagnostic tool, delivered via the website, is the first guided self-assessment survey of its kind and is designed to help healthcare providers determine whether their business complies with important healthcare laws.

Once the survey is completed, the RiskShield Tools team provides an in-depth, onsite assessment and generates a comprehensive report with prioritized action items. "You don't just get a plan that sits on a shelf," states Mr. Cohen. "Instead, you'll receive specific guidance regarding action to take and be reminded to schedule regular visits with our compliance team, who are trained to help you stay on track."
