Today’s healthcare industry is one of the most highly regulated and scrutinized industries in the nation. As a result, while providers of healthcare would like to soley focus their energies and efforts on the actual practice of healthcare, they cannot afford to ignore the ever-changing laws and regulations that surround their practices. Current and proposed healthcare laws and regulations are generating unprecedented numbers of governmental compliance issues, enforcement actions and regulatory concerns for providers.
In order to successfully navigate in the industry, providers of healthcare must not only strive to understand compliance requirements and have a working compliance program, they must ensure that they maintain their access to the tools and knowledge of compliance to protect their practices.
