THE COMPLIANCE MINDSET:  It's All About "Doing The Right Thing"


Many times in the healthcare industry today, the mere mention of "compliance" brings negative thoughts among professionals, signifying the level of worry about adhering to regulations to avoid adverse consequences for their organizations.  For this reason, Karen Bommelje, RN, BSN, HCS-D CHC, Senior Manager, Simione Healthcare Consultants, suggests that home care and hospice providers work to motivate their teams by re-positioning compliance as simply a matter of  "doing the right things for the right reasons, which affect all aspects of your organization."

In order to create a "culture of compliance", the nurse executive and 20+-year home health/hospice veteran said organizations should start by assessing the level of knowledge and understanding about compliance, risk and ethics.  The next step involves identifying the high-risk compliance issues that may be threatening quality, reimbursement or other vital components for survival in today's high-scrutiny environment.
