Compliance programs are now mandatory for physician practices. Government agencies are auditing physician offices and health plans are requiring providers to show proof that they have an effective compliance program that includes compliance training in place. Regulations increase and get more complex every year and it's critical that all staff know AND UNDERSTAND the rules to help protect your facility. An accusation of fraud can have serious consequences on the practice's financial status, patient care and reputation. Most fraud is inadvertent and can be avoided with proper knowledge of the rules.
The first step in maintaining an effective compliance program is to provide annual updated, expert compliance education to your physicians and staff members. This engaging, multimedia online course covers the rules and regulations that ALL physician office staff must follow to reduce fraud and abuse risks, improve the accuracy and completeness of billing and collections, and improve the quality of patient care.
This course is designed for medical staff, not for legal experts and contains video scenarios and exercises representing common compliance issues and resolutions. CME credits are available.
