Throughout the discussion, Roz and Mark touch on the following concepts:
- What constitutes a well-designed compliance program?
- Does the corporation’s compliance program work in practice?
- Barriers to implementing an effective compliance program
- Compliance effectiveness red flags
Roz walks through what it means to have a truly effective compliance program and why compliance programs are essential for healthcare organizations of any size. One of the most critical factors in establishing an effective plan is the “tone-at-the-top” of a healthcare organization, or more simply put, how an organization’s board or executive leaders position a compliance program and its compliance officer.
