In 2001, Debbi Conn co-founded Universal Healthcare Consulting, Inc. As co-founder, Debbi has been the nucleus of developing comprehensive compliance programs that meet all regulatory requirements, always emphasizing patient safety as the focal point of her work.
Debbi has been a Registered Nurse in Florida since 1985. After spending years working as a Nursing Supervisor with experience in hospital ICU and ER departments, she eventually ventured into the domain of outpatient surgery. After working with numerous plastic surgeons in South Florida--- assisting in the large undertaking of opening and maintaining exceptional operational status for office-based surgery centers and ASCs-- Debbi realized the need for oversight of, and education in, compliance with state, federal and accrediting body standards. Her passion for quality healthcare services led Debbi to subsequently become a licensed Healthcare Risk Manager. She became active with Florida’s Board of Medicine in developing the current rules for office surgery and, after proving her involvement to be extremely beneficial, was hired to be an inspector for the state. With more than 35 years in the healthcare field, Debbi is known as an industry expert for compliance in the office and ambulatory surgical arenas.
Under her guidance, and along with her wonderful staff, Universal Healthcare Consulting has developed UHCloud2 compliance software platform. UHCloud2 provides the industry’s only automated software to provide risk assessment and reduction services, policy implementation, risk management program monitoring, quality improvement, and safety and infection control, all while habitually meeting the standards set by federal, state and accrediting bodies. Debbi also helped create the first “virtual inspection”, performed by a reputable accrediting body, utilizing the UHCloud2 platform; a new paradigm shift in today’s ever-advancing world.
Debbi and her team have helped more than 160 facilities in 21 states develop their risk management programs, from facility design straight through to full accreditation and continuing compliance management. Debbi is proud of her strong record of deficiency free surveys and takes pride in her one-on-one personalized approach to serving all of her clients.
When not working, Debbi can be found running on the beach, biking or paddle boarding. She enjoys travel and fun times with great friends and family.
