Prior to subscribing to The Compliance Store's comprehensive database of regulatory documents and manuals, Barbara Baxter, an administrator, used to rely on periodicals and communications with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for regulatory guidelines.

But Baxter's approach at her Woodstock, GA-based facility became a lot simpler when she switched to The Compliance Store's web-based service.

When shopping around for a new regulatory solution, her primary concern was accuracy, followed by cost, and something user-friendly.

“I have saved a great deal of time using this program,” Baxter says. “My staff have also been impressed that we know of changes before our peers.

“This is a great benefit to our quality improvement program, too. It gives us valuable information to get a head start on changes coming to us from CMS.”

Web-based source
The Compliance Store provides subscription-based access to more than 7,000 regulatory documents, which are continually updated. The website also has state regulations posted for each of the 50 states.
