Today’s healthcare regulatory environment is more complex than ever.
Regulatory compliance has always been essential for healthcare organizations. But the legislative upheaval that healthcare has been subjected to over the past decade is nearly unprecedented. Hospitals and health systems have a litany of programs with which they must comply, all while fending off threats of data breaches and other instances of abuse.
Successful healthcare organizations proactively identify areas of risk and instances of noncompliance. ECG can help your organization be prepared on a number of fronts.
