An effective Healthcare compliance program fosters a culture of compliance at all levels of a company’s structure and should be reviewed and updated regularly to ensure the plan reflects recent organizational and regulatory changes. This program is more than just a written plan, though. An effective compliance program must meet the seven core elements specified by the Office of Inspector General (OIG), and it needs to be assessed annually to develop a work plan for improving areas of weakness. Our compliance program effectiveness assessments can help an organization either begin the compliance journey or improve upon the program they already have in place.
Our process begins with a discussion of your operations. From this discussion, we tailor our assessment procedures to the individual needs of your practice. Our assessment evaluates each of the seven elements of the OIG’s compliance guidance, taking into account your provider type(s), size, location(s) and complexity. This process provides metric, core element and overall numeric scores in a color-coded report card format that can serve as a road map for your compliance officer, executive management, legal counsel, and board of directors to help identify and correct gaps in your program’s implementation.
Our goal is to help you enhance compliance program effectiveness, measure and monitor periodic results, minimize risk, and chart a path for the future.
