Broad and Cassel is pleased to announce that Fort Lauderdale Of Counsel Vanessa Reynolds recently became certified in Healthcare Privacy Compliance (CHPC). Awarded by the Health Care Compliance Association’s Compliance Certification Board (CCB), the designation requires significant relevant experience and successful completion of at least 20 hours of approved continuing education, followed by a comprehensive examination.
Reynolds is the first Broad and Cassel health law attorney to earn the CHPC® designation and joins only 450 complianceprofessionals across the country who are certified. Fort Lauderdale Managing Partner Gabriel Imperato was the first attorney in the nation to become certified in Health Care Compliance and is one of four attorneys in the firm to receive certification. He currently serves on the board of directors of the Health Care Compliance Association.
“I salute Vanessa for becoming one of the few attorneys in the United States to receive this prestigious designation,” said Imperato. “This advanced training allows her to offer our clients a higher level of knowledge regarding health care privacy compliance.”
According to the CCB, an individual with CHPC® is “someone with knowledge of relevant regulations and expertise in compliance processes sufficient to assist healthcare industry in understanding
and addressing legal obligations, and promote organizational integrity through the operation of effective compliance programs.”
