April 7, 2009 — Health Care Compliance Strategies Inc. (HCCS), the leading provider of online healthcare compliance and competency training, today announced the release of newly updated online multimedia compliance courses. The updated courses are Corporate Compliance, Professional Compliance, and HIPAA Compliance.
These new courses from HCCS are designed to educate healthcare staff and administration on their role and responsibility with critical government regulations. These three HCCS courses are an important part of an ongoing compliance program for healthcare organizations to help protect their staff, their patients, and their facilities.
Medicare, Medicaid, and HIPAA rules and regulations are constantly changing and can be difficult and confusing for staff to understand. In the last year alone there has been physician and corporate compliance regulations, guidance and changes regarding the False Claims Act (FCA), the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS), Identity Theft and Red Flags rules, Medicaid eligibility, the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative Program (PQRI), the OIG Workplan, and dozens of other regulatory topics.
In addition, The Stimulus Act of 2009 has prompted many important changes to guidelines surrounding HIPAA. Healthcare organizations are faced with new deadlines and criteria to meet.
HCCS addresses these issues and many others in short, customizable, and easy to understand modules.
Along with new content, HCCS has updated the courses with new videos, scenarios and interactive exercises to engage learners and increase information retention.
HCCS provides regular updates to clients via their online training courses when rules, regulations, legal rulings, documents or other information becomes available that impacts course content. HCCS’ online learning and competency solutions enhance job performance and promote compliance with ethical, legal and accreditation guidelines.
