Corporate Compliance

Tip: Incorporate your compliance program into your performance plan

Compliance Monitor, May 4, 2011

When evaluating the performance of managers and supervisors, factor in adherence to the elements of the compliance program. Managers, along with other employees, should be periodically trained in the new compliance policies and procedures. In addition, all managers and supervisors involved in the coding, claims, and cost report development and submission processes should do the following:

  • Discuss with all supervised employees the compliance policies and legal requirements applicable to their jobs
  • Inform all supervised personnel that strict compliance with these polices and requirements in a condition of employment
  • Disclose to all supervised personnel that the hospital will take disciplinary action, up to and including termination or revocation of privileges, for violation of these policies or requirements
