See how Nashville and compliant cultures fit in the HCCA Conference

Key takeaways from Inspector General Daniel R. Levinson's Keynote Address at the 2016 HCCA Compliance Institute  Levinson kicked off HCCA's 20th year anniversary conference with a remarkable speech addressing the importance of compliance in healthcare. He emphasized how mature the compliance field has become and compared compliance to Nashville's very own Athens of The South – the Parthenon. "This conference has annually been called an institute, but I think of it now as an institution," said Levinson. "An institute is formed for a specific purpose, whereas an institution has more gravitas and more purpose. There is a seriousness of purpose to an institution." Levinson captures that "gravitas" and that "purpose" by comparing the healthcare compliance world to the classic 2,000 year old Parthenon where each column represents the different disciplines required to actually creating a compliant culture. With one column actually being the compliance office itself, one being billing or coding, one clinical expertise, one administrative staff and one representing technology. "Each column stands to create that structure of permanence and solidity that is required for a healthcare institution."
