MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) today announced it will celebrate its 20th Anniversary during the HCCA's 2016 Compliance Institute on April 17-20, 2016, at the ARIA in Las Vegas. In the years since the association was founded, the compliance and ethics profession has grown from a once unfamiliar and uncommon occupation to being a central part of today's business landscape. A key measure of the profession's maturity is the growth of the HCCA. Just last week the HCCA, along with its sister association the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics, announced that jointly the two organizations now have over 16,000 members.
"We are celebrating much more than 20 years for the HCCA," said association CEO Roy Snell. This milestone marks the maturity of the compliance profession, which plays an essential role in preventing, finding and fixing the problems that can derail business." HCCA's growth shows that an ever-increasing number of health care businesses understand the need for lawful, ethical behavior and the need to have a dedicated compliance function.
"Health care providers and the enforcement community have both realized that effective compliance programs, led by skilled compliance professionals, are central to preserving the integrity of the health care system," said Snell.
HCCA will mark this occasion at its annual meeting, the Compliance Institute, which is expected to draw more than 3,000 attendees.
