Long-Term Care Compliance is Our Business

Two of the greatest challenges that long-term healthcare care organizations face are maintaining compliance with State and Federal laws and maintaining reputational integrity. Developing an effective compliance program is not just the right thing to do but it also makes good business sense.

Our approach is grounded in the best practices in healthcare and corporate compliance, improves the overall quality of care and prevents the potential for regulatory non-compliance. 

By making compliance an intrinsic part of the way your business operates, your staff can focus more on the primary mission at hand: to efficiently and effectively provide quality care to residents and patients.

Our broad experience and wide range of staff expertise drive success through:

  • Compliance program development, review and audits
  • QAPI program development and review
  • Development, implementation and review of internal quality monitoring and internal monitoring programs
  • Consulting and training on “systems” development and data use for root cause analysis and other quality and compliance related functions
  • Training programs to improve healthcare delivery and services, regulatory compliance, person-centered care/culture transformation and risk management

What We Do – LTCI’s Systems Approach

Through our systems approach, we assess the effectiveness, reliability and thoroughness of quality of care systems currently in place within healthcare organizations or individual facilities/centers.

LTCI uses a multi-step process to review current systems in use by a health care organization or individual facility/center. Our experts examine the quality assurance and performance improvement systems and individual care delivery areas to help determine how the organization (and levels of the organization) develops, implements, maintains and improves its systems.

We combine individual resident/patient-level care findings, facility/center-level findings and overall organization findings through direct care observation, staff and resident/patient interviews and record reviews.
