you are cordially invited to join us for a one day event:
Training for Board Members of Health Care Organizations: A Practical Introduction
May 30, 2019 | Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, Orlando
What are the expectations of a Health Care Organization Board Member? Can you describe your role in establishing policies and objectives and assessing risk in areas of quality improvement, patient safety, and compliance programs?
Following the lead of publications by the American Health Lawyers Association and the Health Care Compliance Association, related to the health care director’s compliance duties, and the CMS Office of the Inspector General (OIG) FHPCA is proud to offer a one day program designed to empower board members with the tools needed and provide practical guidance for health care governing board on compliance oversight.
In addition, attendees will receive education on general duties of board members: the duties of care, loyalty, and obedience. There will also be practical guidance to attendees on differentiating between policy functions and operational roles, and how to stay in the proper lanes of responsibility.
Topics & Objectives:
• An Overview of OIG and DOJ expectations for board member oversight of compliance
• How Audits, Compliance, and Legal issues overlap within the health care organization
• Defining the reporting structures and relationships between Quality, Risk Management,
and Human Resources
• Identifying and audit potential risk areas
• Define and Explain the Compliance Program Guidance from the OIG
• How to Encourage Accountability and Compliance
• What to expect on a routine report from your organization.
• Board Member Responsibility: General Duties and Your Appropriate Role
Each attendee, and sponsoring healthcare program, will receive a certificate to demonstrate a good faith effort made in strengthening the understanding of oversight and compliance programs.
