Regards from HCCA’s 19th Annual Compliance Institute

Posted by Frank Strafford on April 21, 2015 in Uncategorized,

The HCCA’s 19th Annual Compliance Institute is keeping us pretty busy!  Here are a couple of eye-openers from the experience:

  • There’s a lot to learn.  Compliance law is constantly changing.  Keeping abreast of the ever-shifting legal landscape can be a full-time occupation.  We believe that the best game plan for compliance officers is to take advantage of the many different programs and services that offer specialized services in each particular field.  We’ve found that experienced vendors are able to maintain far more comprehensive focus on their particular arena, providing a far superior level of compliance coverage than any one compliance officer trying to go it alone.
  • Networking is key.  Everyone’s combined experience is better than any one expert’s individual experience.  Great programs are created by joint input from talented people.  Services recommended by many individuals are bound to meet your own expectations.
  • You can always improve.  There are always new ideas to implement, new layers of protection to add to a current compliance program.  As we bring our services to the clients out there, we hope we’re doing our part to shoring up the level of professionalism and compliance coverage in each of their facilities and organizations.
