Your Comprehensive Corporate Compliance Program
HCP develops a Compliance Action Plan for your entire organization that meets the requirements of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and includes site-specific online training for your staff.
Your compliance specialist helps you create your compliance committee and schedule your committee meetings. All staff and business associates are imported and checked against the OIG’s exclusion list monthly.
We ensure that all necessary policies including your code of conduct are developed and received by your staff and then store a history of their training completions thus minimizing the risk that fraud, waste abuse or inefficiency will occur.
Your Corporate Compliance Program includes:
Policies and Procedures
HCP provides customized policies for your organization including among others: Code of Conduct; patient confidentiality; records retention; and documentation practices; and effective lines of communication.
Fraud Waste & Abuse (FWA)
