PX Advisor

Summer 2015

As you well know, healthcare is a heavily regulated industry; care providers are under the oversight of myriad state and federal agencies ranging from OSHA to CMS—in addition to private organizations such as JCAHO and NCQA. In this environment, healthcare organizations today are facing numerous compliance challenges. Many in the industry are feeling overwhelmed by the increasing number of regulatory mandates stemming from recently enacted legislation such as the HITECH Act, the Accountable Care Act, and the HIPAA Omnibus Rule. In this issue of PX Advisor, we take a look at a number of these challenges and also consider new recommendations for continuous resuscitation training, managing corporate conflicts of interest, what is required under Corporate Integrity Agreements (CIAs) with the OIG, increasing threats to cyber security, and challenges faced by the industry in reducing unnecessary hospital admissions. Our intention is that you will gain some insights from others that will help you to mitigate risks in your own organization.
