The Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) is a nonprofit, individual membership organization that aims to help health care professionals with ethics and compliance.
The Health Care Compliance Association uses education programs, publications, monthly newsletters and news updates, regional seminars and conferences and professional networking to disseminate information about ethics and compliance. One popular outlet is the use of social networking; the organization has its own website, called HCCAnet, which serves as an immediate-access forum for members to share their insights and inquiries.
The organization fosters three main objectives -- the promotion of quality compliance programs in health care, the availability of a forum for interaction and information exchange among members, and the offer of educational and certification opportunities in compliance for health care industry professionals.
Established in 1996 as part of the annual Medical Group Management Association meeting, the Health Care Compliance Association has now grown to over 6,500 members and has led to the development of a sister organization, the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE), which boasts international membership.
