In today's environment, medical personnel cannot afford to take risks with lawsuits and other potentially devastating consequences that can be associated with failing to comply with internal standard operating procedures. Along with potentially costing millions of dollars, allegations of wrongdoing can damage an organization's reputation. Internal guidelines are set to protect healthcare providers from future lawsuits or penalties, meaning that healthcare and corporate compliance are inexorably linked and critical for an organization's continued success.HCCS recognizes just how critical it is for the staff at healthcare institutions to understand and follow the guidelines set by the organization along with following government regulations. This course explains these rules in a unique online / Internet training program for employees at all levels. It is a cost-effective way to avoid the risks of fraud and abuse, and reduce the costs associated with employee education.

Improving the quality of healthcare is a national initiative and is mandated in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. According to the Medicare Conditions of Participation (COPs), a healthcare organization’s governing body is responsible for ensuring that clear expectations for safety are established. It must, for example, implement an effective and ongoing Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) program. Such a program tracks and analyzes adverse events in order to determine preventive actions throughout the hospital. This course seeks to enhance your appreciation of this process and promote your active involvement. This can help to reduce adverse events, thereby improving patient care outcomes. This course will teach you how to deal with adverse events at your facility. You will learn: • What adverse events are and how to respond to them • What sentinel events and serious reportable events are, and how to respond to them • Strategies for preventing adverse events

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common type of healthcare-associated infection, accounting for approximately 36% of HAIs. Of those UTIs, 80% are catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI). Annually, urinary catheters are inserted in over 5 million patients in acute care hospitals and long-term care facilities. CAUTI infections create patient distress, discomfort, and substantial care burdens and costs. This course is designed to improve patient outcomes by helping you to understand best practices in preventing CAUTI.

The healthcare industry is becoming increasingly vulnerable to technology and security risk. The widespread adoption of electronic health records (EHR) combined with frequent regulatory reform is creating rapid change in the industry. An increased network of data connectivity, while designed to improve the delivery of patient care, is also creating opportunity for hackers and others to take advantage of tremendously valuable medical information. Cyber security is fast becoming a critical component of healthcare data exchange and management. As major security breaches continue to top the news; governments and regulatory organizations are responding with new regulations, increased oversight, and stiffer penalties. Increased demand for mobility, along with a move to link a wide variety of systems to IT infrastructure, adds to the overall risk. As a result, healthcare cyber security has grown from a component of security to a category in and of itself. 4Medapproved in cooperation with Kardon Compliance has developed a certification path for security professionals to inform their awareness of this critical area of data protection and achieve proficiency in Cyber security management and execution in the workplace.
