Don’t hope or guess; assess

You might garner hints of some of the regulatory changes in the works from trade publications, webinars, seminars, white papers, etc. But they amount to general information, not specific to and analyzed with your business strategy in mind.

  • The Regulatory Risk Assessment (RA) incorporates human intelligence, legislative and policy research, analysis, and insights from our own insider experience in Congress and the administrative branch and our understanding of how Washington works.
  • Our RA enables you to anticipate the coming regulatory threats, vulnerabilities, and opportunities not readily recognized that you face and to understand how they’ll affect your business or investment. The RA examines these for your time horizon.

Coming to a regulated sector near you: New risks

  • Mobile health app uChek failed to see new regulatory risk as the FDA stepped up scrutiny of mHealth as medical devices. The start-up had only a third of the funds needed to jump this regulatory hurdle, so it’s not in the U.S. market.
  • In 2013 alone, HHS, CMS, and FDA added $16 billion in extra regulatory costs and 25.7 million hours of new paperwork requirements to health sector companies.
  • Pharma and medical device firms face $200,000 for Sunshine Act compliance; HIPAA privacy and security rules now cost the hospital sector $8.2 billion a year.

Peace of Mind

Our Regulatory Risk Assessment improves your business strategy and gives you peace of mind.

You could join a trade association or chat up an expert at a conference. But that, too, will be general or less comprehensive than you really need to be actionable.

A better option is a customized regulatory risk assessment and mitigation strategy.
