HMCC Overview

Meeting Professionals International (MPI) is recognized for providing premier education and professional development opportunities to its members and the meeting and event industry at large. Now MPI is proud to bring this commitment to the Life Science meeting segment of our industry by offering the Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate (HMCC).

The HMCC course is designed for those who need a broader understanding of a full range of healthcare regulatory topics. It is a perfect fit for those who are involved in planning and reporting transparency and spend as well as those suppliers who provide services and products to the healthcare industry and the condensed class format of the HMCC makes it easier for busy professionals to fit training into their schedules. 

Cross-border healthcare compliance continues to be a complex and confusing issue for medical meeting professionals.  Global compliance regulations, codes, laws and mandates differ from country to country causing time-consuming searches and validation for reporting.  The HMCC tackles the difficult topic and offers tips and solutions for destination searches and solutions.  Seventy percent (70%)  of medical meetings are expected to be held in compliance regulated destinations in 2016 so it is imperative to understand sourcing and international reporting.

The HMCC course examines the fundamental information on healthcare compliance regulations, laws and techniques for managing healthcare meetings. An effective meeting and business event professional must understand several aspects of conformity of information in order to identify and report the nature and type of payments made to “covered recipients”. In addition, the class will examine the interaction between manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, medical device, biologics and medical products, physicians and those who are responsible for planning medical meetings and conferences.
