BusyEvent Mobile and Pat Schaumann, a health care compliance author, partnered to create MyComplianceWizard for the events industry.
The online resource is designed specifically for global health care meeting professionals, compliance officers and financial teams at pharmaceutical, medical device and health care companies. The mobile-ready tool will be used to access the laws and codes that govern geographic areas so that meetings professionals may plan efficiently and remain in compliance across all event segments and for all attending participants.
My Compliance Wizard is suitable to be used on any computer or smart device, and is built to be an easily navigable, go-to repository to look up a country or state and immediately be presented with local planning information and the latest codes of compliance for healthcare professionals.
Pat Schaumann, CMP, CSEP, DMCP, HMCC — authored the resource guide, Breaking the Code to Healthcare Compliance, and developed the Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate program for MPI in partnership with Saint Louis University as a recognized expert on evolving health care reporting requirements.
The collaboration with BusyEvent Mobile, creator of a mobile event platform for managing, guiding and facilitating meetings and events, kept cross-device functionality at the core of development and a deep understanding of the operations of compliant events in the health care space top of mind.
My Compliance Wizard features:
- Immediate access to information in 196 countries & 50 U.S. states
- Current compliance regulations, codes and laws for each destination
- Details on travel & expense rules with access to real-time data
- Meal limits and currency conversion rates
- Time, weather, holiday and other cultural data important to planners
- 24 x 7 subscription-based, online access across devices
- Automatic updates and notification when regulations, codes and laws change for a destination
“The regulations regarding reporting payments and expenses to or for medical professionals have been extended significantly by the Open Payments Act and the Affordable Care Act in the U.S., and by other regulatory authorities throughout the world,” noted Schaumann. “We designed My Compliance Wizard to provide easy access to the ever-changing codes of conduct, and as a necessary service to meeting planners who must control and facilitate the reporting to CMS and other regulators. Offering live updates and control will allow planners to concentrate on the management of their meetings without diverting attention to regulatory requirements.”
My Compliance Wizard is the first Web-based compliance solution of its kind to offer immediate access to accurate and up-to-date, global and U.S. compliance regulations information. The tool bridges a resource gap in planning for the medical meeting industry. In addition to the events expertise enacted by the combined team, the BusyEvent Mobile team brought a unique cadre of data and information experts with deep experience in the development of web and app-based tools to the project.
“Pat and I have known each other for years and always talked about a suite of tools to address health care meeting compliance and reporting.” said David Schenberg, HMCC, chief evangelist, BusyEvent Mobile. “But we heard there was an immediate need to wrangle the codes of compliance and stay up to date. So we decided to start with a solid foundation and build up from there. We’re event planners who use technology to automate things, so we understand what’s important to planners. This is just the first step to helping the medical meeting community comply with ever changing codes.”
