The OIG has stated that entities “should regularly review the implementation and execution of their compliance program elements. This review should be conducted at least annually and should include an assessment of each of the basic elements individually, as well as the overall success of the program.”
So what they’re saying is, you have a compliance program in place, but is it lowering risk and protecting your organization from non-compliance, fines, and more? Exactly how effective is your compliance program?
A Compliance Program Effectiveness Review is crucial for maintaining compliance and preventing risk. But getting it started can feel daunting. Where do you begin? What are the OIG and DOJ expectations? What are the metrics for measuring the effectiveness of various program elements?
