Healthcare Compliance and Accreditation (HSL401)
Health care compliance is monitored and assessed by various accrediting bodies in both the clinical and educational side of healthcare delivery. In this course the student will analyze accreditation and compliance issues relevant to healthcare and explore the role of the accrediting body in monitoring ongoing compliance. Compliance practices will be correlated to federal and state laws which govern healthcare delivery and healthcare education. Records and documents will be critiqued to ensure regulatory compliance is satisfied. Students will recognize areas in which potential abuses or deficient practice may occur and explore the processes of developing, reviewing, and implementing policies and procedures which ensure the departments remain in compliance. Credentialing and regulatory agencies at the state and federal level will be examined. Credit: 3 hours. This course is offered in an online format. Spring or as needed.
