Who are the masterminds behind the Compliance Wizard:
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. Pat has over 25 years teaching and mentoring MPI event professionals on managing compliance and regulations for the industry. She is the only one that teaches the healthcare meeting compliance certification. Currently working on the healthcare extension for the CMP certification.
“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 US, and by other regulatory authorities throughout the world,” noted Pat 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.”
BusyEvent is a St. Louis, Missouri-based company comprised of a team of event professionals with decades of experience as event producers, managers and operators, and creators of a mobile event platform for managing, guiding and facilitating meetings and events.
“Pat and I have known each other for years and always talked about a suite of tools to address healthcare meeting compliance and reporting.” said David Schenberg, HMCC – Chief Evangelist of 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.”
