The integration between corporate governance and clinical governance has provided significant improvements to the effectiveness of patient care and economic performance. All this, integrated with compliance practices such as institutional policy and mitigation of operational risks.
Top-Level Commitment, Proportionate Procedures, Risk Assessment, Due Diligence, Communication, Training and Monitoring are the hallmarks of an effective compliance program in a hospital. Companies with a culture that focuses on values, risk management, and innovation are more likely to succeed. Similarly, the independence of compliance officials is critical to the effectiveness of a compliance program.
The most important role of compliance is to prevent and deter fraud and non-compliant behavior.
It is essential that compliance officials be involved before major business decisions are made.
