Registration for this event is being conducted by the Community Health Care Association of New York State (CHCANYS)

The Compliance and Risk Management Academy is a year-long learning initiative for health center professionals working in the areas of compliance and risk management.  Together, CHCANYS and FTLF will guide participants through a four-part series of interactive, virtual meetings.  

Federal and state laws and regulations mandate many aspects of the relationship between Compliance Officers/Risk Managers and the Board of Directors – from the requirement of a dotted-line reporting relationship to the content and frequency of reports to the approval of specific policies, reports and other documents.  This half-day session will review these legal and regulatory requirements and provide support for Compliance Officers and Risk Managers to improve their health center’s Compliance and Risk Management programs through improved interactions with the Board of Directors.  This session will include conversation and case studies to allow attendees to learn from the presenters and their peers.   

Target Audience

  • Compliance Officers
  • Leadership Staff (Operations, Clinical, Finance)
  • Risk Management Staff
  • Quality Improvement Staff

Please note: Audience is restricted to health center staff only.
