Compliance training is essential in any industry, but especially in healthcare. The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics expects the need for compliance officers to grow by more than eight percent between 2016 and 2026. When you consider the fact that 30 percent of the largest OSHA fines in 2020 were above $1 million, it’s easy to see why staying in compliance is so important. But, it’s not just a hit in the wallet for non-compliant agencies — their reputation and credibility also get seriously tarnished. A recent study found the cost of non-compliance can be as much as three and a half times higher than the cost of compliance.
In healthcare, compliance refers to proactive tasks aimed at preventing fraud, waste and/or abuse within a healthcare organization.
Compliance programs are active and ongoing to ensure that all ethical and professional standards are continually met and communicated throughout the whole healthcare entity.
