Keeping You Updated With Changing Regulations
Hospitals must comply with many regulations and standards causing many of the providers we work with to feel like they are being pulled in a thousand directions trying to remain compliant. From ever-changing healthcare laws, accreditation requirements, licensing, and certification standards, and more you could easily staff a department just to keep up. Added to the frustrations of determining the impacts of changes in regulations or standards, doctors and nurses must have open communication to ensure they are providing the patient with the care they need. Often one, or both, parties are missing critical updates from administration and as a result the patient’s care suffers.
With so many moving pieces and changing regulations, it’s essential for hospitals to effectively manage their policy manuals. This includes regularly updating policies, distributing them to staff, and making sure they get implemented across the organization.
