Managing Reopening Risks

June 25, 2020

Access the on-demand webinar here.


Many health centers, behavioral health providers, and Ryan White grantees maintained clinical staffing during the COVID-19 public health emergency while scaling back non-clinical programs and implementing telework for their administrative staff.  Now, as state and local governments begin to reopen, these organizations must determine whether and how to bring program and admin staff members back on-site.  While all employers must consider the compliance risks related reopening, these organizations face additional risks depending upon the number and type of clinic and admin sites they have, whether they own or rent the sites, and whether clinic and admin spaces are blended at the sites. 

Understanding these risks and how they apply to your organization are the first steps to successfully transitioning staff members back to their worksites.  This webinar will identify key compliance and regulatory requirements and provide a framework for assessing your organization’s risks.  The presenters will also identify strategies to incorporate the reopening risk assessment process into your organization’s compliance and risk management activities.

  • Clinical providers, including federally-qualified health centers, behavioral health organization and Ryan White (RWHAP) grantees
