New Online Training Course Reduces Risk for Physician Groups

JERICHO, N.Y., July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HCCS (Health Care Compliance Strategies, Inc.), the leading provider of online healthcare compliance and competency training, today announced the release of a new online compliance training course designed to educate physicians and staff at physician practices on complying with increasingly complex government regulations. This easy to understand, engaging, multimedia online course covers the rules and regulations that ALL staff must follow to reduce fraud and abuse risks, improve the accuracy and completeness of billing and collections, and improve the quality of patient care.


An effective compliance program is now mandatory for all physician practices. Government agencies are auditing physician offices and health plans are requiring providers to show proof that they have an effective compliance program that includes compliance training in place. The government is scrutinizing the billing, documentation, medical necessity, referrals, quality of care, and overall compliance programs. New audit strategies are being deployed toward physician practices in Medicare and Medicaid, with a focus on provider billing and behavior, patient care, and networks.

The Professional Compliance – Physician Office online training course from HCCS covers many areas including compliance issues related to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), fraud awareness, basic coding and documentation, E/M documentation, and referral guidelines. The course is designed for medical staff, not for legal experts and contains video scenarios and exercises representing common compliance issues and resolutions. Physicians, other providers, support and office staff, and management will learn about common types of healthcare fraud, identity theft, the Recovery Auditor's Program (RACs), basic ICD and CPT information, referral guidelines, the anti-kickback statute, and other topics.

"Most accusations of fraud by the government are caused by inadvertent actions and can be avoided with proper knowledge of the rules," says Ben Diamond, President of HCCS. "The Professional Compliance - Physician Office training course provides a great foundation for a compliance program and is an easy way to reduce risk in physician groups."

HCCS compliance training courses are designed to change staff behavior by utilizing adult learning principles. Courses include real-life video scenarios, narration and interactive exercises to engage learners and increase retention. Completion certificates and CME credits are available.

HCCS can host and deliver the course with full reporting or it can run on any Learning Management System. More information is available at
