The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) and other regulatory bodies have called for health care organizations to regularly demonstrate and evidence their compliance programs’ effectiveness. The OIG recommends that organizations incorporate independent reviews and compliance program effectiveness evaluations into their regular compliance operations to identify gaps and deficiencies in the compliance program. These evaluations can also evidence that the compliance program covers all seven elements of an effective compliance program outlined by the OIG, and track key metrics that show compliance program effectiveness.
To prevent compliance incidents and provide adequate proof of compliance effectiveness, Compliance Officers should work with an independent organization to conduct objective compliance program evaluations. Strategic Management has over 26 years of experience in the health care compliance industry, and offers high-quality effectiveness evaluations to help organizations evidence their compliance programs’ effectiveness.
