The definition of healthcare compliance is deceptively simple. Healthcare compliance is the process by which healthcare organizations meet or exceed regulatory, reimbursement, legal, ethical, and professional standards. Compliance is essential in protecting the health and safety of patients and staff, but it is also essential to building trust with patients, consumers, physicians, payors, regulators, and employees.
Compliance is important, but made challenging by the sheer volume of regulations and regulators. Further complicating the issue is the constantly evolving nature of these regulations and a pandemic that has caused even more rapid change in the regulation of safety and reimbursement. Unique regulations by care setting and jurisdiction make the regulatory landscape even more difficult to negotiate.
It is important that an organization's compliance solution to ensure the organization is keeping abreast of changing regulations, protecting against malicious phishing attacks as well as creating a socially responsible environment for patients and staff. Healthcare organizations have plenty of things in common, but they also have unique qualities and challenges that make a cookie-cutter approach to compliance a recipe for compliance missteps. So why should your organization have a custom compliance solution?
In healthcare, it may be impossible to completely eliminate risk, but a strong healthcare compliance solution that is customized to the unique needs of your organization is the best and first line of defense.
