We help our clients
Managed care contracting and grant compliance
Internal and external factors may cause complexities to the relationship with third parties (e.g., government, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.). Baker Tilly works with our clients to help maintain compliance with federal, state and local regulations regarding licensing, operations, facility ownership, and reimbursement rates and procedures.
Protect and address cybersecurity and IT risks
Information assets and technology investments left ungoverned and unprotected leave organizations vulnerable to compromise and loss of reputation, revenue and patients’ data. Baker Tilly’s cybersecurity specialists work with organizations to assess their risks, design controls, implement effective security and IT governance processes, and become/remain compliant with cybersecurity regulations.
Data privacy protection
Privacy of patient information is particularly sensitive for behavioral health institutions. We help clients address, build and manage a proactive, comprehensive approach to privacy, including adherence to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) and other emerging data privacy regulations.
Federal, state and local tax
Our team of tax specialists monitors changes to the tax code, and regularly updates our clients on the challenges and opportunities that may affect their organization, including strategies to lower your tax rates while ensuring compliance and safeguarding the tax-exempt status of not-for-profit institutions.
Robotic process automation (RPA)
Upgrading patient information to electronic health records (EHRs) allows for better sharing of patient data among providers. However, this also increases the risk of issues with data integrity and repetitive tasks. Our team of automation specialists help implement RPA technologies to automate mundane workflows, which helps reduce operational costs and errors, enhance efficiencies and provide better patient experiences.
Payment transformation to value-based care
As more providers are transitioning to a value-based care system, there are significant changes needed for many stakeholder groups. Our team of specialists helps organizations become aware of value-based care program mechanics, how to collaborate with payers to improve program performance, tackle legacy systems and implement new enabling technologies, and assists with the change management process of communicating with care teams and patients in a more continuous way.
The development of quality, affordable housing is vital, but it also has complexities that introduces additional rules and regulations governing operations, finances and reporting. Paired with our real estate expertise, Baker Tilly works with for-profit and not-for-profit affordable housing owners and developers to take advantage of tax credits and rental assistance programs for people with disabilities.
Merger and acquisition services
Many institutions often contemplate one of the biggest questions they may ever have to face – do I want to acquire or transition the business? Baker Tilly’s transaction, accounting and tax specialists work with behavioral health organizations to identify and prepare for a transaction opportunity; negotiate, structure and close the deal; and plan beyond the transaction closing with straightforward advice.
