All Sleep Centers are required to implement a compliance program to remain compliant with State and Federal regulations, thus reducing the risk with audits and potential for assessment of penalties.
Regulatory compliance affects all areas of a sleep center or sleep DME service, from the receptionist to the provider.
To conform with the Federal and State requirements, regular education and training of all staff members about the Compliance plan is required, with ongoing monitoring for sustained integration of the regulatory standards.
It is important to follow the compliance guidelines to protect your reputation and credibility within the community.
Compliance in the health care industry is the process of meeting regulations, recommendations, and expectations of federal and state agencies that pay for health care services and regulate the industry.
These include integrating standards and practices to promote operating a sleep center in accordance with federal and state regulatory requirements.
The outcome of the integration provides privacy, health information security and appropriate insurance claims processing to reduce fraud and abuse.
