Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 18, 2011
Compliance 360 (http://www.compliance360.com), a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for enterprise governance, risk management and compliance (eGRC), is hosting a webinar on developing and managing compliance policies, which has become a cornerstone for effective compliance programs. The webinar, scheduled for today at 2:00 p.m. ET, will guide healthcare organizations on ways to ensure that their written compliance policies are properly developed, up-to-date and effectively communicated with and understood by all parties. http://compliance360.com/Mailers/2011_05_Webinar_Policies.asp
Due to the Affordable Care Act, CMS is developing new provisions that mandate compliance programs as a condition of participation in Medicare, Medicaid and the Child Maternal Act. As a result, the entire compliance program landscape is taking on new levels of importance and healthcare executives are charged with not only certifying compliance but proving program effectiveness.
A critical element of an effective compliance program relates to written compliance guidance in the form of policies and procedures. Compliance 360 executives will join Richard Kusserow, former DHHS Inspector General, and Deborah Hutchinson, general manager of the Compliance Resource Center, LLC, to discuss best practices in compliance policy development and management. Sample policies and templates will be made available to all attendees.
WHAT: “How to Develop and Manage Compliance-Related Policies”
WHEN: Wednesday, May 18, 2011, from 2:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. ET
