When Nancy Smit started working in the health care industry, there were no computers to process billings. Now, federal health care reform is less than six months away. Smit will be among those helping businesses navigate the changes. Her company, SHR Associates in Annapolis, recently formed a joint venture with Owings Mills financial services and accounting firm Rosen, Sapperstein & Friedlander Chartered to tackle the opportunity. "That's one of the exciting things about being in health care -- it's never stagnant," said Smit, who was a physical therapist before founding SHR three decades ago.
