Class: Regulatory and Compliance
Week 06 –Written Assignment-Course Project – Policies for Compliance Plans
For helpful background, refer to this module’s section Policies and Procedures, which is in the Lesson Contents attachment below.
Are you ready to present the policies for your two compliance plans in a way that all employees will understand at a large medical facility where you are the Compliance Officer?
Your assignment is to write two 1-2 page sections in a Word document describing the policies for each of two compliance plans. Remember to support your policies for the two plans with a total of three research sources, cited at the end in APA format. (That’s 1-2 research sources per plan.)
Polices you should consider covering for each plan come under the key compliance elements: Compliance Standards, High-Level (personal) Responsibility, Education, Communication, Monitoring/Auditing (for Safety), Enforcement/Discipline, and Response/Prevention.
Look these over in your research and then select just two of these key elements and write your policies under them for each of your two compliance plans. (Your policies for each plan can zero in on different key elements.)
- A compliance plan about washing hands between patients might describe policies for High Level (personal) Responsibility and Monitoring/Auditing (for Safety)
- A compliance plan about charging patients for Diabetes Management Education as a Physician Visit might describe policies for Compliance Standards and Enforcement/Discipline.
Looking ahead to Module 08, please note that you will be asked to write procedures for the same policies that you develop here for your two compliance plans.
I will attach the two compliance plan topics and previous assignments for the topics. That way, you can keep the same flow of the topics along the same contents for the Project.
Save your assignment as a Microsoft Word document.
