Wilmington, DE and Lawrenceville, NJ—December 17, 2014—First Healthcare Compliance (http://www.1sthcc.com), a national provider of a comprehensive compliance solution to help healthcare providers save time and money by efficiently implementing an effective compliance program, announces the official launch of their affinity partnership with Medical Society of New Jersey (http://www.msnj.org).
The First Healthcare Compliance Affinity Partners program provides partners with an opportunity to refer members to First Healthcare Compliance, and for their members to receive a ‘members-only’ lifetime discount as a new subscriber. First Healthcare Compliance helps their members save time and money, mitigate risk and maintain focus on patient care by providing them with a comprehensive solution to implement and manage a compliance program that addresses HIPAA/HITECH, OSHA, the False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark in a simple, efficient and effective manner, in one place.
“As First Healthcare Compliance continues to grow nationally, we are committed to developing relationships with qualified Affinity Partners. It is a winning proposition for organizations interested in offering an innovative new service benefit to their members,” said Julie Sheppard, Founder and President of First Healthcare Compliance. “We are thrilled that such a well-respected organization as the Medical Society of New Jersey is also committed to providing the resources and tools for healthcare practitioners and professionals to better manage their practice. We are confident that this new partnership will help us better reach physicians and other healthcare providers in private practice, and healthcare networks or health systems in New Jersey.
“Like us, the Medical Society of New Jersey understands the pressing needs of this market for a comprehensive compliance program management solution,” continues Julie Sheppard. “They recognize the incredibly limited resources available and the void that the First Healthcare Compliance solution fills.”

About First Healthcare Compliance
First Healthcare Compliance provides solutions to address the needs of the physicians and healthcare providers and their staff in private practice, or those in hospital networks and health systems, to implement and maintain a high quality compliance program in a simple, effective and efficient manner. The new business model created by First Healthcare Compliance enables them to offer a comprehensive, single-source compliance solution.
A privately-owned women business enterprise founded in 2012 in Wilmington, DE by Julie Sheppard, First Healthcare Compliance was created from the rising concern Julie had in witnessing the increasing demands being placed on physicians and other healthcare providers in private practice and in hospital networks and health systems, to comply with the rules and regulations of the Affordable Care Act. As a nurse, an attorney, and a physician’s spouse, Julie identified a widening gap between the expectations of government and the reality of compliance for healthcare professionals. She recognized the opportunity available to fill the void of practical compliance resources and options to solve these needs; this became the impetus for the formation of First Healthcare Compliance.
