Many health care facilities and providers have turned to laypersons and companies to handle some or all front and back office functions. These resources are typically not licensed, not subject to regulatory scrutiny and may be based domestically or overseas. This type of delegation is often touted as saving costs and allowing providers to focus on patient care rather than administrative functions.
Delegating responsibilities in this manner, however, does not relieve the health care provider or facility from responsibility for regulatory compliance with respect to the outsourced functions. Further, under state and federal laws, some functions should not be assigned to non-licensed persons. Likewise, it is necessary to do due diligence to be sure that a company or layperson can make good on errors or noncompliance.
