New Collaboration Brings Advanced Advisory Services to Healthcare Organizations Leveraged by ComplyTrack, a Governance, Risk, and Compliance Software Platform

NEW ORLEANS, LA – Compliance Partners announces an agreement with Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory Solutions U.S. to help healthcare organizations streamline and manage compliance amidst shifting regulatory guidelines. This collaboration will allow Compliance Partners to deliver customized, comprehensive healthcare compliance services and software solutions utilizing ComplyTrack premier enterprise-level risk and compliance software from Wolters Kluwer. Created expressly for the needs of healthcare organizations by two groups known for their deep knowledge of this market and its needs, this solution will empower organizations to keep up with complex and rapidly changing regulations.

New guidelines and rules created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) have created challenges for healthcare organizations throughout the country, particularly when it comes to compliance, risk, and quality. Healthcare organizations of all sizes must manage and stay up-to-date with these regulatory changes in order to avoid major penalties for non-compliance. This new solution, which leverages industry leading enterprise-level risk and compliance software from Wolters Kluwer and managed via Compliance Partners’ holistic approach to compliance and risk management, will help fill resource gaps by providing the ongoing advisory support and customized compliance capabilities healthcare organizations need to stay informed and remain audit-ready.

“Healthcare organizations of all sizes are dealing with complicated changes in compliance regulations,” said Heidi Redmond Raines, CEO and President of Compliance Partners. “Our solutions enable providers to focus on the communities they serve without the worry of punitive compliance penalties and enforcement actions. This allows them to concentrate their limited resources on what it is they do best – providing high quality healthcare to their patients.”

“It is mission-critical for healthcare organizations of any size to have the knowledge and tools they need in order to meet more complex reporting requirements and respond to the increased probability of audit,” says Tim Feldman, General Manager, Healthcare Compliance & Reimbursement at Wolters Kluwer. “Regulatory demands are growing, while reimbursement is shrinking. By leveraging ComplyTrack, the Compliance Partners team can help their clients automate processes and make compliance programs as efficient and effective as possible. We also recognize that protecting information is mandatory in this environment. Our solution is configured for each specific organization, ensuring the secure and restricted access required to track and demonstrate progress of compliance programs over time, identify areas of recurring risk, and ways in which to mitigate it.”
