Compliance for the C-Suite
In the highly regulated world of health care, enforcement agencies expect organizations to understand, assess and mitigate their compliance risk. For health centers, this task is complicated by the number and complexity of the federal laws and regulations that apply to everyday operations – from billing, coding and grants management to compliance with Section 330, the FTCA, 340B and HIPAA.
This training is designed to provide health center management team members with the latest updates on compliance risks related to key federal laws and regulations, including the following topics and speakers:
- Federal Grants Management – Ted Waters
- Reimbursement – Matt Freedus
- Section 330 – Marcie Zakheim
- Federal Tort Claims Act – Molly Evans
- 340B Drug Discount Program – Jason Reddish
- Confidentiality (HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2) – Dianne Pledgie
Each FTLF attorney presenter will discuss areas of highest risk, recent regulatory changes and enforcement activities affecting health centers. In addition, presenters will identify the biggest compliance challenges facing health centers and suggest strategies to address those challenges effectively. The training will include a hands-on session during which attendees will learn how to conduct a compliance risk assessment and develop a compliance work plan.
This training is ideal for the health center’s key management, including CEOs, CMOs, CFOs, COOs, General Counsel and Compliance Officers and Risk Managers, as well as other members of the health center’s C-suite and other managers. Because the topics addressed affect various departments and the hands-on sessions provide an opportunity to develop compliance work plan activities, health centers are encouraged (but not required) to send more than one attendee.
This training will include:
- Educational sessions on substantive compliance risk areas to help health centers build their compliance work plans for 2020;
- Hands-on session on conducting a compliance risk assessment and developing meaningful compliance work plan activities; and
- Opportunities to interact with FTLF attorneys and other attendees in a small group setting.
- C-Suite/Leadership: CEOs, CFOs, COOs and CMOs
- Compliance Officers and Risk Managers
- New members of the health center, including C-Suite, managers, and other leaders
After this training, you will be able to:
- Understand how recent changes to the federal laws and regulations, as well as the government’s enforcement priorities, are affecting health centers
- Assess your health center’s compliance risk level through an enterprise-wide compliance risk assessment process
- Develop activities for your health center’s 2020 compliance work plan to mitigate the identified compliance risks
