Educational Webinar: OIG Corporate Integrity Agreements Define Effective Compliance Programs
Webinar Date/Time: August 24, 2017 at 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EST
Corporate Integrity Agreements (CIAs) are among the most important methods used by HHS Office of Inspector General for promoting and defining an effective compliance program. Whereas the OIG compliance guidance is voluntary and generalized, CIAs impose strict compliance standards. Currently, there are over 345 active CIAs, and that number grows by an average of three to four new CIAs monthly. They also evolve in terms and conditions. Recent CIAs provide an up-to-date perspective on the OIG’s priorities and their position on effective compliance programs. This one-hour educational webinar will focus on the lessons learned from CIAs in term of what makes a compliance program effective, including:
- Current CIA terms, conditions and case specific requirements
- How CIAs define Compliance Program Effectiveness
- Increased focus on Compliance Program Effectiveness
- Game Changing CIA Requirements
- Evolving obligations for Boards, Executives and Compliance Officers
- Certifications by boards, executives, and compliance officers
- What is needed before and after executing a CIA
