“Healthcare has entered the era of “Compliance 2.0,” fueled by information technology and analytics designed to root out fraud, contends Daniel Levinson, Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services.
Levinson, who has headed the HHS OIG for more than a decade, made the remarks in a keynote address at last week’s Health Care Compliance Association conference.
‘We’re really looking at a different era,” which is bringing “together technology with the right expertise,’ said Levinson during the 2017 HCCA Compliance Institute. ‘When we got off the ground in the mid-1990s, it was really the beginning of the Internet age. A lot has happened in 20 years technologically. Now, we have the kinds of tools that we couldn’t have imagined 20 years ago.’ ”
The foregoing quote from the May 2, 2017, issue of Health Data Management article by Greg Slabodkin entitled “HHS IG: Technology aids ‘Compliance 2.0’ oversight in healthcare” (http://bit.ly/2p9Vxv3) recognizes the new tools available for the USA DHHS OIG in executing his mission “… to protect the integrity of HHS programs and operations, by detecting and preventing fraud, waste and abuse.”
A Cloud Healthcare Appliance Real-Time Solution as a Service (CHARTSaaS) integrated development environment (IDE) compliant with the CHARTSaaS IT reference architecture (RA) can be used by healthcare provider subject matter experts to create with minimal cost and IT complexity administrative and clinical apps that include such required or otherwise critical management control features such as audit trail maintenance and state-if-the-art security. Please validate this proposition to your own satisfaction by reading the white paper at http://bit.ly/2nhwqpd and then by reviewing the details of CHARTSaaS and the CHARTSaaS RA in these presentations:
Healthcare providers will benefit significantly from appreciating and then applying a CHARTSaaS RA-compliant IT solution. To do so will mitigate medical mistakes (currently the third leading cause of patient deaths. per Makaray and Daniel http://www.bmj.com/content/353/bmj.i2139), thereby minimizing patient adverse events and optimizing clinical case outcomes while maximizing the cost-effectiveness of care and treatment while accelerating the accrual and application of medical knowledge.
