Legislation and politics can have wide-ranging implications for organizations both inside and outside government. Every day, organizations big and small are making complex decisions involving regulated industries that operate at the meeting point of legislative, political, regulatory, and commercial factors.
We take our government expertise and put it to work for you through in-depth analysis of the effect of healthcare policy and other regulations on your competitiveness, comparative analysis of proposed policy alternatives, effects of regulations across constituencies, and analysis of unintended consequences that can stand in the way of desired outcomes and success.
We also work with organizations to develop and/or assess their internal policies and procedures, program descriptions, and operation manuals against legislative, regulatory, and accrediting standards and requirements for compliance.
Compliance, at its heart, is about doing the right thing. This is a deceptively simple concept set inside the complexity of the healthcare industry.
We can help you “gameify” your compliance testing. “Gamification” makes testing of compliance much less tedious for staff and more understandable through hands on experience. It can be a challenge to help staff, from leadership to management to line staff, understand their role in compliance and how it pertains to their roles at work, this is one way to help clear up any haziness.
Policy development can be tough with changing regulations. We can analyze what your policies cover to make sure you’re meeting compliance requirements. You may have too many policies or not enough, either way we can help you determine how you stand.
We can conduct HIPAA privacy reviews with your staff and help you set up the best way to test the reliability of your policies and breach response plans. We can also help identify the weaknesses in your compliance strategy, evaluation of your compliance plans, or develop new compliance plans for establishments that are new to the regulations.
Familiarity and transparency breed staff who are interested in and willing to participate in a working compliance program that protects the company. In addition, reputation can play a big role in patient choice, ensuring your facility is compliant is one way for patients to feel good about their provider choice.
