Health Care Compliance Program

In today's health care marketplace, recent laws and regulations illustrate the government's focus on scrutinizing the actions of hospitals, home care services, physician practices, long-term care facilities, and other health care providers.

You need to protect yourself from potential civil and criminal sanctions. Having a compliance program is the way to start.

The Department of Health and Human Services and its Office of the Inspector General encourages health care organizations to establish and implement compliance programs as a way to demonstrate your efforts to comply with state and federal laws. In some cases, federal law even mandates providers to have an effective compliance program.


  1. Assign and conduct program oversight
  2. Develop/revise policy and procedure
  3. Conduct training and education
  4. Create an auditing and monitoring system
  5. Open lines of communication
  6. Recommend responses and corrective action
