Your health care organization has had several small compliance incidents in the past 2 years, and the organization is now motivated to update its compliance program. Your executive leadership team asked you to review 2 health care compliance programs from similar organizations to determine how they constructed their compliance program and what aspects your organization should adopt.

Select the type of health care organization you want represented in this assignment (e.g., family practice, hospital, urgent care, or nursing home).

Locate 2 compliance program documents from comparable health care organizations, using your Internet search engine.

Read both compliance program documents and examine the similarities and differences between the 2.

Create a matrix that compares how both organizations execute the following compliance components:

How internal monitoring and auditing is conducted

How compliance and practice standards are implemented

  • The designated compliance officer (or person designated to be the contact for compliance matters), who that person reports to, and their relationship to the organization’s governing board
  • How employees are trained and educated to model compliant behaviors

How violations or offenses are detected, reported, and corrected

  • How lines of communication with employees are developed

How disciplinary standards are enforced

  • Write a 525- to 700-word executive summary that informs your executive leadership about the matrix you created and offer your opinion as to which best practices the organization should adopt for its own compliance program.
