Firms form health care consultancy
The word trinity just took on a whole new meaning for three firms.
In order to keep clients informed about America’s ever changing and often confusing health care system, three Kalamazoo firms have joined forces on a collaborative effort to create one large, local health care consultancy called Compliance One.
Compliance One was created last year as an alliance between Lehmann & Associates, a health care consulting firm, CSM Group, a construction management firm, and Eckert Wordell, an engineering, architecture and interior design firm.
The strength of the three companies working together will offer the firms’ clients a number of services, including risk assessments, software solutions and barrier management services.
“Compliance One is constantly analyzing what regulatory and accreditation agencies are surveying to, evaluating standard and code changes,” said Jeffrey Lehmann, a Compliance One partner.
“This enables the health care organization to engage one trusted source to provide sustainable, compliant and tested solutions,” added Jeff Eckert, a Compliance One partner.
One of Compliance One’s projects was performing a comprehensive consulting event for Spectrum Health.
The event lasted four months and evaluated security and provided interim security department leadership, according to Compliance One’s website.
“Compliance One provides not only the expertise in completing facility surveys to meet Joint Commission and CMS requirements, but solutions and implementation of those solutions to health care providers,” said Todd McDonald, a Compliance One partner.
McDonald added that Compliance One will help clients "systematically address regulations related to health care compliance standards.”
