Compliance Tools for Streamlining Corporate Compliance Programs

 

Corporate Compliance

Recent Corporate Integrity Agreements (CIAs) from the Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services (OIG) have included unique obligations for life sciences and healthcare organizations - such as holding the Board of Directors and the Senior Management accountable for commercial compliance, corporate integrity, and ethics. As evident in recent pharmaceutical and medical device company settlements, the scope and complexity of CIAs havebeen increasing and now includes reviews performed by Independent Review Organizations (IROs).To support these requirements, compliance officers are contemplating how to streamline corporate compliance programs.
