From CCH Healthcare Compliance - CCH Introduces The Healthcare Compliance Letter

At Last, a Complete Look at the Compliance Picture

For Healthcare Professionals

(Riverwoods, ILL., October 12, 1998) -- With fines, disqualifications and criminal convictions of health providers at record levels, healthcare organizations are discovering that compliance with federal and state laws and regulations is more than keeping track of reimbursements, according to CCH INCORPORATED, a leading provider of health law information and software. As a result, CCH will introduce The Healthcare Compliance Letter, a biweekly newsletter, developed to keep compliance officers and health attorneys abreast of the full range of compliance topics affecting the highly specialized healthcare environment -- from Medicare/Medicaid and labor laws, to antitrust and tax exempt status. CCH made the announcement today at the Healthcare Compliance Association Conference, New Orleans.

The authoritative professional newsletter will draw from CCH’s 85 years of reporting on complex legal and regulatory compliance issues. CCH is the publisher of several respected, flagship publications in the healthcare industry, including The Medicare/Medicaid Guide.

"We’ll be calling on all of our news-gathering resources to keep The Healthcare Compliance Letter subscribers current on a wide spectrum of compliance issues, and most important, applying that information to the very specialized, complex interests of the compliance professional," said Daniel J. Weissburg, Esq., editor in chief. "Compliance officers, healthcare attorneys, providers, administrators, finance directors, safety managers, reimbursement specialists and human resources directors all face -- and must comply with -- a wide range of rapidly changing federal and state laws and regulations."

Weissburg cited a number of major topics sure to be on the editorial news calendar for The Healthcare Compliance Letter. These include fraud and abuse, false claims, patient rights, the intricacies of maintaining a tax-exempt status and the specialized applications of OSHA, human resources and labor law. In addition, the Letter will advise professionals in this rapidly evolving business sector on compliance related to antitrust and ever-changing privacy and confidentiality requirements.

"Our editorial breadth allows us to bring a truly comprehensive approach to healthcare compliance," Weissburg noted. "Kickbacks and false claims are among the obvious traps, but the compliance officer who unwittingly lets an organization jeopardize its tax-exempt status unnecessarily is not doing a complete job."

The emphasis throughout the newsletter will be on timely reporting, plain-language writing and practical strategies for busy healthcare compliance professionals, according to Weissburg.

"Being proactive is the essence of compliance today. " Weissburg said, "We’ve designed The Healthcare Compliance Letter to be the compliance professional’s radar screen. It’s an early-warning system so compliance professionals can recognize and react to situations before they result in potentially significant exposures."

Editorial Board

Subscribers also will benefit from the experience of the CCH Compliance Editorial Advisory Board for The Healthcare Compliance Letter and the entire CCH® Compliance™ portfolio. The 16-member board includes noted health attorneys, consultants and other industry experts who provide a frontline perspective on emerging trends in commentaries, features and interviews.
