At Predictive Medical Solutions™

We take laboratory compliance very seriously. We model our compliance pillars after the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) recommendations. A comprehensive compliance program is one that must establish clear concise internal guidelines and at the same time one that stays abreast of the constantly changing healthcare environment. Our compliance division prides itself in continued education and an established culture of clinical excellence, transparency and respect of our regulatory system.

We understand that the process from specimen generation to laboratory result completion is a complex one

It involves many individuals and protocols to achieve a high level of clinical excellence. A solid compliance program must be geared for not only the laboratory technical staff and personnel but also for our physician and clinical providers, our sales and marketing team, our billing division, channel partners and countless others involved in this process. For these reasons we have created a compliance section on our website which will offer insight into industry regulatory changes, legislation and other pertinent content which we will continue to add and update. In addition, we will offer ongoing compliance training to ensure that we educate all those involved in these processes.

Predictive Medical Solutions™ follows the compliance program guidelines set forth by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) which recommends the following healthcare compliance program tips:

  • 1 Implementing written policies, procedures and standards of conduct
  • 2 Designating a compliance officer and compliance committee
  • 3 Conducting effective training and education
  • 4 Developing effective lines of communication
  • 5 Conducting internal monitoring and auditing
  • 6 Enforcing standards through well-publicized disciplinary guidelines
  • 7 Responding promptly to detected offenses and undertaking corrective action
