New Partnership for Expert Online Compliance Training Courses
August 29, 2013
HealthStream has formed a strategic partnership with Health Care Compliance Strategies, Inc. (HCCS), a leading provider of online compliance and competency training courses. The partnership enables HealthStream clients to train their staff using well respected online compliance education directly on their existing HealthStream Learning Center platform.
An effective compliance program is now mandatory for all healthcare facilities. Government agencies and accrediting bodies are auditing healthcare organizations and health plans are requiring providers to show proof that they have an effective compliance program that includes compliance training in place. The government is scrutinizing the billing, documentation, medical necessity, referrals, quality of care, and overall compliance programs. New audit strategies are being deployed in Medicare and Medicaid, with a focus on provider billing and behavior, patient care, and networks.
The first step in maintaining an effective compliance program is to provide annual updated, expert compliance education to your physicians and staff members
HealthStream customers will now have access to widely used EFFECTIVE multimedia compliance training solutions which enhance job performance, improve patient outcomes, and promote compliance with ethical, legal, and accreditation guidelines. HCCS courses combine real-life video scenarios, interactive exercises, audio narration and other multimedia elements to create an engaging, exciting learning environment. Courses are role-based and kept updated as rules and regulations change. They are designed to change staff behavior and maintain compliance with ever-changing regulations.
