Why is compliance good for business?
Most organisations understand that meeting legislative and regulatory requirements is a fundamental part of running a business. Being an NDIS and/or Aged Care Provider that meets all of the obligations under the various Acts, Regulations, Advisory Codes (Principles/Standards/Codes of Practice) is also essential to maintaining approval status.
But it also gives a level of certainty to clients and others that the business is doing the right thing by the people it supports and confidence in the way in which services are delivered. Keeping up with compliance is good practice!
How does amerginhub help?
Australian businesses typically have to monitor a multitude of publications and websites for updates, both nationally and state-based, to keep abreast of changes. Once changes are released and enacted, the business is then responsible for implementing them into their procedures and practices. Particularly at audit time, it is important for a Provider to show how they are keeping on top of their compliance requirements. This is where amerginhub does the work for you!
amerginhub monitors all relevant legislative and regulatory updates and hosts them in one central location. You can search for National or State-based updates depending on where your business operates without having to filter through various other changes. We translate the information into easy to follow guidance on what the changes mean and how it needs to be applied in day-to-day operations through Watch.Read.Do. Listen to our subject-matter experts with a video (Watch); explanation and helpful tips in a written update (Read), and a suggested Checklist with sample policies and procedures, forms or documents, and/or guidance on how to meet the new requirements (Do). The completed checklist can then be used as evidence at audit time.
How do these updates affect my business?
The updates cover all associated legislation for NDIS and/or Aged Care Providers (the industry specific Acts) as well as general business compliance, such as Workplace Health and Safety, Quality Assurance (Food Safety) and Human Resources. If you aren’t keeping up with changes then you may be found non-compliant at audit time, resulting in non-conformances, or you could face other penalties depending on the legislation you are failing to meet.
Compliance doesn’t have to be onerous and time consuming, and best practice providers do well because they incorporate all of their obligations into the process rather than creating additional ad-hoc steps. Keep it simple and make it work for your business, with amerginhub to support you!
