The Annual Best Compliance Practices Forum is upon us (October 15-16; DC Metro) and it will be an exciting Forum. Eleven Best Practices have been selected from all submissions nationally.

Best Practices are selected by a panel of senior compliance professionals who review all submissions received by the Health Ethics Trust and select practices that are exceptional judged by current compliance program standards.

This year’s Best Practices include:

  • Physician Network Compliance – Atrium Health
  • Risk-Based Provider Audits – Atrium Health
  • Clinical Research Auditing and Monitoring – Northwell Health
  • Institutional Conflicts of Interest – H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center
  • Navigator Code of Business Conduct – GuideWell Source
  • Security Awareness and Training – Northwell Health
  • Adding a Communications Professional to Compliance – Baylor Scott & White
  • Effective Education and Training – Highmark Health
  • Measuring Training Effectiveness – Health Care Service Corporation
  • Encourage and Reward – BCBS Tennessee
  • Camp Compliance – Erlanger Health

These practices break new ground. For example, while most of us measure compliance training completion, the actual effectiveness of the training is very hard to determine – but HCSC has found a way. Many of us are uncomfortable with growing physician networks, but few can monitor compliance in real team – but Atrium can. All practices are presented in an accessible form and are available to attendees.

In addition to featuring Best Practices, the Forum boasts a faculty of regulatory and enforcement leaders. The full faculty will be announced in the coming days.

Tuition for the Forum is always modest to encourage sharing of Best Practices. Learn more at and enroll now while there are still openings. For additional information, enrollment or available scholarships, call the Heath Ethics Trust at 703-683-7916.
