Healthcare compliance is emerging as a critical field in the wake of tightening regulations in the United States. An increasing number of healthcare organizations are prioritizing the effectiveness of their compliance programs, enhancing compliance training, and revising and updating compliance policies. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics predicts a rise in the demand for compliance programs in the next few years.
The requirements of healthcare compliance are quite extensive that requires comprehensive knowledge and expertise to stay in pace with the changing laws and regulations of the government. It is advisable to address the challenges involved in the multitude of sensitive patient processes, ensuring privacy and security for patient information, quality in patient care, prevention of fraud, and protection of healthcare devices.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) cybersecurity and privacy has gained significant importance in the last few years, owing to the rise in cyber-attacks, data breaches, and optical character recognition (OCR) enforcement actions. The need for a more exhaustive reviewing has spurred healthcare organizations to move from internal process measurements to independent service providers.
