Is Your Compliance Plan Working For or Against You?
2020 Evaluation and Management Symposium: Virtual Conference
Presented Thursday, September 24, 2020
The OIG began releasing suggested Compliance Program guidance for various healthcare settings/entities over 20 years ago. Most healthcare organizations have a Compliance Plan now. But is it collecting dust? Is it a canned plan? Who knows about it…and is it effective? In this dynamic presentation, two of the nation's top experts in health law discuss the value of compliance. It should be a part of the daily culture of your organization, presenting as detailed, well thought-out policies and procedures that assist in streamlining your organization’s business operations, reduce the likelihood of statutory violations, help avoid ethical breaches, and serve as evidence that your organization is doing its best to fully comply with applicable rules and regulations. Is your current plan working for you, or is it working against you?
