HCP | Healthcare Compliance Pros


At Healthcare Compliance Pros (HCP), we understand that the healthcare industry continues to face a significant amount of regulatory oversight in HIPAA, OSHA, Corporate Compliance, and Human Resources. Much of the regulation requires not only creating a compliance program (with all the relevant policies and procedures), educating their staff, and providing ongoing assessment and auditing of their programs; but the ongoing burden of regulatory updates and employee re-education.

Many healthcare organizations have struggled to find an efficient, simple, and cost effective way to stay current with these high overhead, low reward liabilities. Having seen this frustration firsthand, HCP has created innovative online tools and comprehensive compliance support to address these needs.
