Providing collaboration, transparency, and intelligence for GRC
Healthcare providers are faced with a proliferation of compliance requirements related to patient information security, operational practices, service delivery procedures, and electronic health record management. Regulatory compliance requirements and industry standards include JCAHO, ARRA, HIPAA, HITECH, SOX , and other national and state regulations for patient safety. Apart from regulatory pressures is the need for healthcare providers to prepare themselves for Medicare and Medicaid audits such as the RAC, MIC, and ZPIC audits .
The MetricStream solution ensures that healthcare providers successfully meet regulatory requirements by streamlining the various components of their healthcare compliance programs - including tracking regulatory changes, implementing policies and procedures, defining and assessing controls, identifying and assessing the risk of non-compliance, and performing internal audits. The solution also helps improve patient safety by supporting quality programs through document control, compliance training, on-going auditing, and recording and reporting issues and non-conformance incidents and the resulting corrective actions. Role-based dashboards, control diagrams, and scorecards provide visibility into on-going healthcare compliance efforts, and bring high-risk areas.
