Make this year the year you take control of your compliance

Make 2023 the year you take control of your compliance

As we enter a new year, many use it as an opportunity to start afresh and get on top of last year’s backlog of compliance tasks.

That’s easier said than done and as soon as hectic practice life begins again, compliance can fall to the bottom of your to-do list.

So, is there a way to get out of this vicious cycle? Yes, and this article will help you find out how.

What makes software for compliance success

Dental regulations and guidance are complex and ever-changing, making it hugely time-consuming for practice managers to always stay up to date.

The simplest solution is to take advantage of the latest technology on the market that can do most of the job for you. So you can focus on running the practice without losing sleep over whether you are ready for your next CQC inspection.

Dental compliance software solutions like Dentistry Compliance by FMC save your practice time & stress by giving you the framework for success.

Save up to 40% of your time by only doing tasks that matter

When you finally get the time to sit down with your compliance, you don’t want to spend a single moment working on something that won’t impact whether you pass or fail.

To save time compliancr software assigns activities with a low, medium, or high priority rating based on ongoing research into how inspections are carried out, the likelihood of an inspector looking at a particular area when assessing a practice, and what impact being non-compliant could have on your assessment.

Practices can then choose to focus on high-priority tasks when short of time and see at a glance how they should be spending their time to best stay compliant. 

Additionally, document tracking tools like the one in Dentistry Compliance allows you to see who has read and signed key practice documents, saving the time and hassle of chasing up team members.

Karen Haresnape is compliance manager at Riverdale Healthcare and spoke about what is important to her in staying compliant:

‘When you’ve got more time, you can go to the lower ones. It shows where you are within the system, what progression you’ve made, and what percentage you’re at within each practice. So to me, that’s a huge benefit.’

Manage compliance across one or more practices

Whether you are setting up your first squat practice or managing compliance across a large dental service organisation, Icomply Next Gen is an exceptionally agile system that can support your business.

At a practice level, compliance software acts as a centralised hub for an organisation that allows every person to log into their personalised dashboard and work through the tasks delegated to them.

The specific alert system also sends automatic reminders to team members to make sure everyone is on track, with real-time deadline updates.

For groups and DSOs, features such as the corporate dashboard allow for at a glance reporting across the entire group alongside the ability for dedicated compliance managers to review, report & engage with specific practices in the group.

At the touch of a button, managers can view each practice to see which ones are flying or struggling so action can be taken.
