Why is compliance important in healthcare?
Healthcare compliance is important because it allows healthcare providers and organizations to improve their patients’ quality of care. Following rules and regulations in healthcare is critical – if procedures are not properly carried out, healthcare providers or patients could be put at risk. Additionally, healthcare compliance ensures that healthcare providers and organizations are meeting or exceeding the expectations outlined by the government. Ensuring that an organization follows all the given guidelines is essential to protect the organization from any severe consequences or penalties, such as lawsuits or fines.
OSHA and HIPAA laws, codes, and regulations are continually being added, updated, or changed. Maintaining and implementing proper compliance can be a confusing, time-consuming process even for veteran office administrators and physicians. However, it is essential to stay up to date on these regulations for all staff safety and to protect your facility in the event of an OSHA spot check or potential complaints from patients or employees.
