About Our Compliance Programs
June 14, 2010
Compliance programs are created to be self-policing efforts designed to preempt the need for law makers to enforce companies to follow federal guidelines.
The legislative roots of today's compliance programs are embedded in federal legislation passed in 1984 that was aimed at reducing fraud and abuse of federal programs. Compliance is now a major topic of health care executives and starting in 1997, commercial laboratories, the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services has created a series of new compliance programs with guidelines for health care providers. This year hospitals and home-health agencies and almost the entire health care sector is trying to find their way within the regulatory programs.
