Why Provider Compliance Is Important
Understand what compliance means and why it’s important to upholding your Approval Status
Why is Maintaining Compliance Important?
It is important to be across your provider compliance obligations to avoid non-conformity enforcement’s such as banning orders, compliance notices and court-based outcomes.
Most organisations understand that meeting legislative and regulatory requirements is a fundamental part of running a business. However, managing your provider compliance under the various Acts, Regulations, Advisory Codes (Principles/Standards/Codes of Practice) is 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 you maintain 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 they need to be applied in day-to-day operations.
With our Watch.Read.Do. module, you can listen to a short overview of each change, read through the detail of the change, and download a checklist to implement the change within your business. Each update is accompanied by sample policy and procedure templates, forms or documents (where required), and expert guidance on how to meet the new requirements.
How do these updates affect my 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.
Provider compliance doesn’t have to be onerous and time-consuming. 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!
