4B:The Compliance Board

CJ Wolf MD MEd CHC CIA, COC, CPC

Making sure your compliance program meets all the recommendations for an effective compliance program is important but making sure the compliance program has the proper oversight from a governing board or compliance committee is paramount to its success. If fact, HHS OIG has written that "Boards are expected to put forth a meaningful effort to review the adequacy of existing compliance systems and functions." In other words, some aspects of an effective compliance program are not necessarily under the direct control of a Chief Compliance Officer, but rather the Board. This session will cover compliance program oversight expectations of Boards, best practices in roles and responsibilities as they relate to the Board and lessons learned from Boards that did not meet their compliance oversight responsibilities.
