BusyEvent Mobile and author/teacher Pat Schaumann, CMP, director of professional development for the health-care sector at Meeting Professionals International, have collaborated to create My Compliance Wizard. The online research resource of codes, regulations and laws in 196 countries is designed for meeting professionals, compliance officers and financial teams at pharmaceutical, health-care and medical-device companies. Schaumann, who has been outspoken about the need for more useful technology in these fields, is the author of Breaking the Code to Healthcare Compliance and the developer of the Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate at MPI. My Compliance Wizard, which will be available in early May, will be a mobile-friendly, cross-device platform with easily searchable compliance information for 196 countries and all 50 U.S. states. It will provide access to real-time data and details about travel and expense rules, as well as meal limits and currency conversion rates. Additionally, it will provide time, weather, holiday and other cultural data of use to those who are planning global meetings. What's more, the platform will provide automatic updates and notifications when regulations, laws and codes change for specific destinations. “We designed My Compliance Wizard to provide easy access to the ever-changing codes of conduct," noted Schaumann, "and as a necessary service to meeting planners who must control and facilitate the reporting to CMS and other regulators. Offering live updates and control will allow planners to concentrate on the management of their meetings without diverting attention to regulatory requirements.” The subscription-based platform license costs $149 per user annually.
