HME Compliance Connection webinar series presents attorney Peggy Whitmore with “The Role of the Governing Body and Compliance in Health Care” 1-2 p.m. ET Aug. 22.

A successful compliance program has the support and oversight of a health care organization’s governing body.  The governing body must understand its compliance-related responsibilities, how to ensure that those responsibilities are met, and how personal liability can attach if non-compliance occurs.


* Appreciate how government expectations regarding governing body responsibilities vis a vis an organization’s compliance program have developed over time.

* Understand the rise in the government’s use of the Responsible Corporate Officer Doctrine.

* Recognize the changing landscape and the need for the governing body to embrace the concept of active involvement and oversight of its organization’s compliance program.  

* Learn what needs to be part of an effective compliance program-related training program for top officials.

* Identify best practices for achieving excellence in governance vis a vis compliance, with a focus on meaningful and effective structures and processes.
