Regulatory Mandatory Reporting
In order to track conditions that affect the public health at large, agencies within New York State, the New York State Department of Health and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene have enacted laws that require practitioners to follow in order to ensure public safety. Our practitioners are required to participate in these government reporting procedures.
