When it comes to receiving proper healthcare, the most important thing is the patient. Pharmaceutical and healthcare compliance is crucial to patient safety. Defined policies and procedures are necessary when dealing with the health, safety, legal and regulatory requirements in the healthcare industry.
Exploring Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Compliance
Healthcare is strictly regulated in the United States in comparison to other countries. “The array of regulations that govern healthcare can seem overwhelming to people who work in the industry. Almost every aspect of the field is overseen by one regulatory body or another, and sometimes by several,” wrote Robert I. Field, JD, MPH, PhD on the complexities of healthcare regulation. In this article, he discusses that the harsh ruling boils down to what’s at stake if these rules aren’t set in place. When the concern centers around the life of a human being, it makes sense. It’s not so much that the rules exist, but the way in which they exist that complicates things. He says that, “health care regulations are developed and enforced by all levels of government—federal, state, and local—and also by a large assortment of private organizations. At times, they operate without coordination.”
