HCCS

HCCS was founded in 1998 to address urgent compliance education needs of the healthcare industry in response to OIG mandates for compliance education. Our principals have extensive experience in healthcare management, compliance, consulting, training, and the development of cutting edge technology. Our Advisory Boards and content contributors include compliance officers, law firms, privacy officers, security officers, consultants, trainers, and clients. Content is created, managed, and updated by our internal content department with healthcare compliance expertise. We are focused exclusively on healthcare compliance and competency.

HCCS courses are designed and created based upon Adult Learning Theory, which indicates that interactivity and multimedia combined with text and graphics is the most effective method to educate adult learners. Our programs incorporate video and slideshow vignettes, audio and other multi-media elements and exercises to keep trainees engaged and involved. This increases retention of content and satisfaction of employees who must complete mandatory modules.

HCCS updates the courseware content on an on-going basis, provides technical support and full back-end reporting. Our blended-learning solutions, including classroom training kits, expand the reach of training to learners without access to computers.

With the release of COI-SMART, HCCS is helping organizations electronically manage and track conflict of interest disclosures. COI-SMART provides sophisticated tools for the development of multilevel questionnaires, automated assignment of reviewers, the development of COI management plans, and data mining tools for auditing, tracking and reporting on potential conflicts of interest.

Clients include over 700 healthcare entities across the country. Over 2,000,000 registered users have logged over 7,000,000 hours of training to date.

In March 2014, HCCS was acquired by HealthStream (NASDAQ: HSTM), a company dedicated to improving patient outcomes through the development of healthcare organizations’ greatest asset: their people. HCCS continues to work to meet the growing demand for effective compliance solutions and is backed by an organization with the resources to meet that challenge.
