Interactive Training combines Technology, Expertise To Ensure Healthcare Compliance In Convenient, Cost-effective Way

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., April 19, 2000) – CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of health law and compliance information, and Ernst & Young have announced the release of their new interactive web-based, healthcare compliance training tool: ComplianceEdge ( The definitive compliance training system, ComplianceEdge, delivers to the desktop CCH’s authoritative healthcare compliance law analysis and Ernst & Young’s world-class educational training and healthcare consulting expertise to provide a compliance training solution to healthcare providers.

The distance training capability is highly convenient and cost effective — since ComplianceEdge is Internet-based, it can be accessed any time from anywhere a user has browser capabilities. Delivered to the desktop, ComplianceEdge also reduces classroom time and allows flexibility in the choice of training environment.

"Leveraging the power of Ernst & Young’s award-winning LEAP technology, ComplianceEdge Internet-based program efficiently reaches a wide range of healthcare personnel – from coding clerks to top executives – and provides detailed coverage of compliance responsibilities at each functional level," said CCH product manager Daniel J. Weissburg, Esq.

Hospital Series Launches ComplianceEdge Line of Training Tools

The Hospital Series is the first training segment released by ComplianceEdge, with comprehensive coverage of compliance issues relating to hospitals and ancillary providers often owned or operated by hospitals.

Training in the Hospital Series spans the spectrum of compliance issues including governance, coding, billing, cost reporting, emergency department, physician relationships, home health, hospices, skilled nursing facilities and patients rights. Upcoming series include Physicians, Managed Care and Pharmacy.

ComplianceEdge Overview

ComplianceEdge lessons and courses were developed by subject area experts at Ernst & Young and CCH in consultation with an advisory board comprised of compliance officers who provide a frontline perspective on effective practices and expert insight on emerging trends.


ComplianceEdge uses the power of Ernst & Young’s LEAP technology and interactive Internet technology to create a practical experience that allows each user to learn at his or her own pace. The distance training capability is efficient and cost-effective, especially for hospital systems with multiple locations and employees on multiple shifts.

ComplianceEdge provides freestanding, self-paced lessons that can be taken over time. Each lesson, which takes about an hour to complete, includes a pre-test to assess the user’s starting level of knowledge, the actual lesson on compliance requirements in specific areas and a post-test to assess comprehension upon completion.


Well-documented training is critical for providers to demonstrate a commitment to compliance, both to a provider’s management or board and to government and accreditation agency auditors. With this in mind, ComplianceEdge generates comprehensive, customizable reports.

"With healthcare compliance a top government priority, it’s critical for those with financial and compliance responsibility within healthcare organizations to reduce liability exposure by ensuring that effective, uniform, dedicated compliance training is in place," said Weissburg.
