To be sure your providers and employees are following all rules and regulations to keep your medical practice compliant, you should create a compliance program. The Office of Inspector General lists seven core components for an effective compliance program.
Implement standards through written policies and procedures
Providers and employees need written policies or procedures to know what is expected, what rules are out there, and how these are to be followed.
Provide your clinic with Standards for Conduct. Specify in writing what is expected from employees. State that they are to act in a truthful manner in both communication and conduct, and that your organization adheres to ethical standards such that patients are to be treated with respect, dignity, and fairness. Stipulate that employees are held in the highest standards of professional responsibility in compliance with regulations and requirements for federal and state laws.
