Behavioral Healthcare (BHC) organizations are heavily regulated under their state’s administrative laws, national accreditation standards of compliance, and other certification requirements. These regulations are in place to ensure the highest standard of safety in behavioral health treatment.
Non-compliance with any of the regulatory requirements can negatively impact the success of your organization. For example:
Non-compliance with your state’s administrative rules and regulations eliminates an organization’s ability to legally operate.
Payers, including commercial insurance providers, require BHC’s to earn and maintain national accreditation (Joint Commission, CARF, etc.) to be eligible for reimbursement.
Organization certifications, such as the ASAM Level of Care certification, provides more financial opportunity, including higher negotiated reimbursement rates
We understand that anyone operating a Behavioral Healthcare organization has the passion and desire to be compliant with these regulations to provide their clients with the highest quality care. However, keeping up with the required tasks to obtain and retain licensure, accreditation, and certification is difficult to manage and time consuming.
Systems for completing mandatory compliance tasks, documenting completion, aggregating the data, and evaluating the reported information is laborious. Data collection and aggregation has historically been done manually (papers, binders) and easily loses priority. Required content (policies, procedures, plans, data) is often disorganized, decentralized, inaccurate, outdated, and inaccessible
Remaining in perpetual compliance is a significant challenge due to the demands of day-to-day operations (time & attention), turnover (consistency), and lack of oversight and visibility by leadership (accountability).
