Compliance Culture Lessons from the Headlines

November 9, 2022

90 minutes

1.8 CCB CEUs

Boeing. Theranos. The Challenger space shuttle.
 
Every compliance program needs policies, training, reporting, leadership and audits to succeed – but it’s not enough. Federal guidance makes clear that an effective compliance program requires a strong culture to support it. Practical experience also teaches us that culture will make or break a compliance program.
 
We will walk through proven strategies you can take at the employee, management and board levels to cultivate a compliance culture that takes your company in a direction of employee trust, internal reporting, audits with integrity, and compliance strength.
 

 

The Compliance Certification Board (CCB)® has approved these events for up to 1.8 and 1.2 Respectively/ live CCB CEUs based on a 50-minute hour, each.

Top Privacy and Security Risks that Can Lead to HIPAA Violations

October 19, 2022

60 minutes

HIPAA breaches can occur everywhere. They come from conversations, from TikTok, from hackers, and from tricky phishing emails. They come from the employee down the hall, from hackers across the country, and from overseas. Later today or tomorrow, there will be new sources of potential HIPAA breaches.

The only way to stay one step ahead is to know and understand the trends and use that knowledge to develop, update or refine your HIPAA security program to mitigate the risk in your organization. Think – Security Risk Assessment and Management Plan. We will walk through top privacy and security risks that can lead to HIPAA violations – and discuss strategies to do something about them.

Compliance Training for SNFs

September 21, 2022

90 minutes

1.8 CCB CEUs

If the OIG walked into your organization and asked the nearest employee about their compliance program, would they reply with an immediate and clear answer? An awkward pause? An “I don’t know”?

For your employees to pass this test, your compliance program needs a strong training program. A PowerPoint slide presentation at hire and annually is not enough. Training should occur year-round and training programs must include the board, contractors and volunteers

This webinar will provide you with easy-to-use strategies for building an enduring, effective compliance training program.
