The ability to demonstrate effectiveness of a compliance program is a key priority for healthcare organizations whether it is to the governing body, senior leadership or federal and state regulators. Having an independent objective assessment of the compliance program’s effectiveness is a means of assuring the organization the resources devoted to the compliance program are justified and appropriate when considering the risk profile of the organization. It also provides the entity with information regarding any gaps in the implementation and ongoing functions of the program.
CynergisTek’s Compliance Program Effectiveness Assessment is designed to evaluate the existing compliance program and provide meaningful feedback on the effectiveness of the various elements and any identified gaps. The assessment will also provide input on industry best practices that might be used to improve the program.
CynergisTek will perform an effectiveness assessment of the organization’s compliance program against the seven elements of an effective compliance program as outlined in the Federal Sentencing Guidelines and the Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) compliance program guidance documents. During this process, CynergisTek’s team of consultants will collect pertinent policies, procedures and documentation related to the organization’s compliance program, as well as interview key stakeholders and various workforce members. The team will also provide feedback and, as appropriate, recommendations to improve the effectiveness of the organization’s implementation and ongoing operation of the compliance program under the seven elements.
