Screening and Evaluating Employee Suitability: The New “Seventh Element” of Compliance.

Screening and Evaluation(May 17, 2017): The recently issued Resource Guide for Measuring Compliance Program Effectiveness,” a product of Office of Inspector General staff and compliance professionals roundtable discussions, reconfigures the traditional “Seven Elements of an Effective Compliance Program” by making the “Screening and Evaluation of Employees, Physicians, Vendors and other Agents” an element unto itself – or the new Seventh Element of Compliance! The Resource Guide, prepared under the auspices of the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA), serves to once again underscore the critical role of exclusion screening and background checks in compliance.

Paul Weidenfeld, Counsel at Liles Parker, has recently assessed this important change and provided an overview of the impact this change for the folks at Exclusion Screening.  For more information on the critical role of screening and evaluating employee suitability in health care, click here.
