Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney and YouCompli Team Up to Transform Health Care Compliance
PITTSBURGH – October 27, 2016 – Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, a national, full-service law firm and YouCompli, a provider of health care focused compliance software, announce a collaboration to deliver practical solutions to health care providers looking to manage their regulatory challenges more efficiently than ever.
YouCompli analyzes health care regulations and uses innovative software to deliver practical compliance requirements to health care providers. Buchanan’s health care attorneys review and validate the accuracy of the guidelines.
“Health care executives are facing a new regulatory reality, operating under tremendous pressure to decrease costs without sacrificing quality,” says Jerry Shafran, CEO and founder of YouCompli. “Regulatory settlements now include a personal component, whereby executives are reaching into their own pockets to pay. This unique approach delivers a solution that will help providers mitigate risks, decrease costs and gain peace of mind.”
“In an industry where compliance is paramount and regulations are many, health care providers seek comprehensive solutions to complex and costly problems,” notes Dale Webber, chair of Buchanan’s health care section. “As a result of this relationship with YouCompli, our attorneys will be able to help health care providers transform their compliance function. We are proud to be at the forefront of this transformation.”
How YouCompli Works
Using YouCompli software is a straightforward process. First, the Expert Content Professional (ECP) uploads the regulation. Then, the ECP translates the regulation into a Business Requirement, using a step-by-step system created by YouCompli.
After an attorney from Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney reviews the Business Requirement and modifies the draft as appropriate, the final version is transferred to YouCompli’s website (i.e., the marketplace), where unlimited clients in the health care sector can purchase the same Business Requirement. Every time a client buys a Business Requirement, the ECP gets paid.
According to Mr. Shafran, “Traditionally, the only customer for a compliance professional’s work has been his or her employer. Because the employer only uses the work once, that person, no matter how skilled, is paid only once. Using our model, these skilled professionals can earn money forever, if clients continually purchase the business requirement which they created.”
