Why is NDIS Compliance Important?
Most organisations understand that meeting legislative and regulatory requirements is a fundamental part of running a business. However, managing your NDIS compliance and/or Aged Care compliance obligations under the various Acts, Regulations, Advisory Codes (Principles/Standards/Codes of Practice) is also essential to maintaining your approval status.
It also gives a level of certainty to clients and others that the business is doing the right thing by the people it supports and confidence in the way in which services are delivered. Keeping up with compliance is good practice!
How does Provider Institute help with NDIS Compliance?
Provider Institute monitors all relevant legislative and regulatory updates and hosts them in one central location. You can search for National or State-based updates depending on where your business operates without having to filter through various other changes. We translate the information into easy-to-follow guidance on what the changes mean and how it needs to be applied in day-to-day operations through Watch.Read.Do. View Sample →
Listen to our subject-matter experts with a video (Watch); explanation and helpful tips in a written update (Read), and a suggested Checklist with sample policies and procedures, forms or documents, and/or guidance on how to meet the new requirements (Do). The completed checklist can then be used as evidence at audit.
How do these updates affect my NDIS Provider business?
The updates cover all associated legislation for NDIS and/or Aged Care Providers (the industry-specific Acts) as well as general business compliance, such as Workplace Health and Safety, Quality Assurance (Food Safety) and Human Resources. If you aren’t keeping up with changes then you may be found non-compliant at audit time, resulting in non-conformances, or you could face other penalties depending on the legislation you are failing to meet.
Compliance doesn’t have to be onerous and time-consuming, and best practice providers do well because they incorporate all of their obligations into the process rather than creating additional ad-hoc steps. Keep it simple and make it work for your business, with Provider Institute to support you!
