What is your role as a partner?
Whether you are participating in our Accountable Care Organization or in DSRIP, you can play a role in maintaining our culture of compliance. Here’s how:
- Know your compliance duties and how they relate to your every day tasks on the job
- Frequently review compliance policies with your supervisor and ask questions if there are any uncertainties
- Know what is in the Code of Conduct and strive to achieve and sustain those standards
- Do your best to identify potential problems early – if it feels wrong, it may very well be wrong!
- Look at auditing and monitoring findings as opportunities for improvement
- When new policies/procedures are implemented, take time to study them and incorporate them into your job
- When in doubt, contact the Compliance Officer and ask questions
- If you suspect that quality indicators are being falsely reported or that a provider is falsifying documentation to satisfy requirements, report it!
