How to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Your EMS Agency’s Compliance Program Using the New DOJ Guidance
Earlier this year, the Fraud Section of the US Department of Justice (DOJ) published its “Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs” outlining the DOJ’s expectations for effective corporate compliance programs. The guidance includes 11 key compliance program evaluation topics, addressing a wide range of topics well beyond the previously articulated “seven elements” of a compliance program. The guidance includes a set of “common questions” that the DOJ considers relevant in assessing compliance programs. In this session, we will review the new guidance and provide you with practical pointers that will help your EMS agency “tune up” your compliance program to comport with the new guidance and to address the key topics that the government feels must be addressed. We will describe how you can use these new benchmarks to design, enhance, and implement an even stronger compliance program so that you can be more “bullet resistant” should the government come knocking on your door.
