Regulatory compliance is a daunting task for the healthcare industry. With the ACA and healthcare reform resulting in more regulations for the industry, many providers feel overwhelmed. Walt Sowers understands firsthand their struggle to find relief from ever-changing regulation and to maintain efficient, effective operations despite it.
Since 2009, he has served as in-house compliance officer for a Virginia health system. “Working closely with management and operational staff on a daily basis, I have learned the importance of providing timely and practical advice,” Walt says. “Clients want the answer to their problem and to know how they can best address it legally, not a lengthy memo from their attorney citing laws and regulations. I understand the daily challenges that clients experience and the importance of practical advice. If you do not provide advice they can effectively implement, you are not adding value.”
