Wolters Kluwer launches the Health Regulatory Change Analyzer for healthcare regulatory and compliance attorneys

Point-in-time solution provides real-time tracking of regulatory changes.

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today launched the Health Regulatory Change Analyzer, a first-of-its-kind legal research solution designed to accelerate healthcare regulatory research by tracking health law changes over time. Available on Wolters Kluwer’s MediRegs and Cheetah™ platforms, this solution allows for increased efficiency and accuracy while monitoring evolving regulatory changes.

Within seconds, users can visually analyze changes to Titles 21, 42 and 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Manuals. Deleted text is redlined, and added text is highlighted in green. The Health Regulatory Change Analyzer features point-in-time functionality, allowing health law professionals, at all experience levels, to quickly audit and understand these changes.“The complexity and frequency at which healthcare regulations are occurring makes it very challenging for healthcare organizations to stay in compliance,” said Kristen Kaplan, Sr. Health Law Portfolio Leader for Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “The Health Regulatory Change Analyzer is a significant time-saving solution that allows health professionals and their advisors to access current regulations and instantly see what’s changed over time using our timeline compare feature. Wolters Kluwer is committed to providing customers with an easier way to check for accuracy and comply with the latest regulations.”

The Health Regulatory Change Analyzer offers users a variety of features including:

  • Point-in-time redlining/greenlining functionality for CFR changes back to 2009 and CMS Manual changes from 2008 to present;
  • User-friendly browse and search capabilities;
  • A calendar feature that allows users to travel back in time to past versions of regulations and manuals;
  • Copy link feature for users to bookmark for sharing with others; and
  • Ability to print redlined/greenlined changes.

Wolters Kluwer is the leading provider of information, business intelligence, and regulatory workflow and compliance solutions for the healthcare industry. Next month, the company is also planning to launch Health Coverage Change Analyzer, which will allow users to monitor and understand changes to Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs), National Coverage Determinations (NCDs) and Coverage Articles.
