Online Courses Address Latest Healthcare Compliance Regulations

JERICHO, N.Y., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HCCS (Health Care Compliance Strategies, Inc.), the leading provider of online healthcare compliance and competency training, today announced the release of three newly updated online multimedia compliance courses. The updated courses are Corporate Compliance, Professional Compliance and HIPAA Compliance.

The updated courses reflect changes in critical compliance regulations that all staff and administrators at healthcare facilities must understand.  All HCCS clients receive regular updates to HCCS training courses whenever rules, regulations, legal rulings, documents or other information becomes available that impacts course content.

The HCCS Professional Compliance course educates physicians, billing staff and other employees on topics which include fraud awareness, coding and documentation, teaching physician rules and referral guidelines. The Corporate Compliance course teaches hospital staff about fraud awareness, compliance risk areas, elements of a compliance program, documentation and hospital coding, billing and reimbursement, illegal provider relationships, patient care risk areas, and other risk areas. The HIPAA Compliance course educates on areas such as HIPAA awareness, privacy, security, the Omnibus rule, and the enforcement rule.

HCCS online compliance training courses are designed to change staff behavior utilizing adult learning principles. Courses include real-life video scenarios, narration and interactive exercises to engage learners and increase retention.

Updated topics in these courses include:

  • Affordable Care Act (ACA) provisions
  • Omnibus Rule requirements, including those for Business Associates and subcontractors
  • Information on the Value-Based Purchasing Program
  • Access to the 2013 OIG Work Plan
  • Overview of current Accountable Care Organization (ACO) initiatives
  • Information on the implementation of the ICD-10-CM system
  • Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) initiatives
  • Information on the Physician Quality Reporting System

"Staying on top of ever-changing regulations is a daunting task, especially when regulations such as the Omnibus Rule are issued," says Ben Diamond, President of HCCS. "That's why it's important HCCS provide clients with updated and engaging training content. It's one less thing Compliance Officers need to worry about, allowing them to focus on other top priorities."

HCCS online courses run on the HCCS SimPL Platform for Learning or any other Learning Management System.  More information and a free demonstration are available at www.hccs.com.
