How sure are you that your compliance programs are under control? If your answer is based on assumptions, you’re putting your day-to-day operations, financial stability, and revenue growth at risk. Senior management, take note: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Department of Justice are holding you liable for compliance deficiencies, and the penalties and reputation damage are significant.
Here's what's at stake if your organization doesn’t prioritize compliance:
A Florida health system settled potential HIPAA violations, including a lack of audit controls and inappropriate employee access to patient information.
A Texas health system settled potential HIPAA violations after senior management approved use of a patient’s name in a press release about the patient’s alleged crime.
An Oklahoma hospital, former administrator, and physicians settled civil claims that the hospital reported services to Medicare that didn’t meet supervision requirements.
Achieving system-wide compliance can seem impossible, but if you know the steps to take and have the right tools, you can implement programs that meet federal requirements and protect your healthcare organization from both internal and external threats.
