Those of us in compliance are busy people. Whether we’re gearing up for our annual risk assessment, conducting trainings, writing or updating policies and procedures, or investigating incidents, there are never enough hours in the day.
That’s not to mention that you may have been handed the role of compliance head in addition to your day-to-day job descriptions. You may already have your role as HR, or office management, or any number of primary responsibilities to think of first and foremost. Long and short, some of us simply don’t have the resources available to us that help ensure organizational compliance. And that can be terrifying.
But I want you to know, it’s ok to ask for help. In fact, the OIG has recommended as much, stating, “In situations where staffing limitations mandate that the practice cannot afford to designate a person(s) to oversee compliance activities, the practice could outsource all or part of the functions of a compliance officer to a third party, such as a consultant, PPMC, MSO, IPA or third-party billing company.”
To that end, I’m going to be hosting a new compliance webinar, “When Should You Leverage Third-Party Compliance Professionals?,” on Wednesday, October 23, at 1 PM ET, where I’ll discuss how organizations of all sizes can find value in outsourcing, and better understand:
- When Organizations Should Outsource the Responsibility of Compliance
- What Compliance Activities Make the Most Sense to Outsource
- Which Outsourcing Models Have Been Most Successful in Maintaining Compliance
