MetricStream to Showcase its Market Leading GRC Solutions at the AHLA / HCCA Fraud and Compliance Forum
Healthcare has always been one of the most heavily regulated industries in the US. But in the wake of the proposed US Healthcare reforms as well as increasing fraud threats, the number of regulations is poised to increase. Thus in addition to existing regulations such as HIPAA, newer mandates such as PPACA and the Stark Act have also emerged. Healthcare organizations have their task cut out for them as they navigate the complexities of these regulations while focusing on patient care.
The Fraud and Compliance Forum will delve into how healthcare organizations can overcome the many regulatory challenges and issues ahead of them. Organizations that attend the conference will get the opportunity to network with peers, gain a better understanding of healthcare regulations and discover new ways in which to address them.
MetricStream will be participating in the three-day event and showcasing its market leading GRC solutions. Renowned for their unique combination of software, content and consulting services, MetricStream Solutions have yielded tremendous benefits to healthcare organizations across the world. Their flexibility and scalability allow them to be customized to meet each organization’s specific needs and demands.
MetricStream’s solution framework has been designed such that all risk, compliance and quality requirements can be controlled from a centralized platform. For instance, MetricStream Compliance Management Solutions provides a single reference point for healthcare organizations to manage the entire spectrum of compliance regulations ranging from OIG requirements to HIPAA, and the SOX Act to PPACA. This streamlined approach helps break down organizational silos in favor of a more collaborative, efficient way of functioning.
Using the Compliance Management Solution, healthcare organizations can manage a gamut of compliance activities - defining the compliance environment, continually assessing controls and risks, validating compliance with regulations, resolving issues and monitoring compliance. The solution also supports a range of compliance related processes including policy documentation, change management, governance and training and awareness programs.

Together, these functionalities help healthcare organizations gain the most out of their GRC programs while reducing costs.
Powerful executive dashboards with drill-down capabilities enhance visibility into compliance statuses, equipping managers and Boards with the required information for business decisions. A versatile Issue Management System tracks all compliance and IT related issues, triggering alerts for remediation action.
