Online Best Practice SubmissionSubmission Deadline: August 15, 2017
Best Practices Deadline Extended
While submissions are coming in, many potential submitters have asked for more time to assemble their submissions. With this in mind, we are extending the submission deadline for the Annual Healthcare Best Compliance Practices Forum until August 15 provided that the submitter notify the Trust of the plan to submit by June 30. Submitters are advised that the physical address of the Health Ethics Trust has changed so that mailed submissions should be sent to:
Health Ethics Trust
1727 King Street
Alexandria, VA 22314
Potential submitters may contact the Health Ethics Trust by email at DirectorOfPrograms@corporateethics.com or telephonically at 703-683-7916
Online Submission Guidelines
Your nomination should explain the nature of the approach adopted in the area nominated and why it has been successful. It may be appropriate to also explain why the nominated compliance practice is special or important in relation to similar activities by peer organizations (e.g., in relation to other long-term care providers of similar size; or other health care plans; or other pharmaceutical companies). Please include this information in the text box in the form below, or attach a separate document in one of the Support Document fields.
Illustrative materials should also be included to support the written submission. These do not need to be exhaustive. Include sufficient materials to illustrate key aspects of your organization’s approach. These can be attached in the form below under Supporting Documents. If you need to submit additional documents, please email them to DirectorOfPrograms@corporateethics.com.
If an organization is nominating in an area (or aspect of an area) where there are written best practice criteria – it is advisable to address how your organization meets some or all of these criteria as part of the application. (Note: It is not expected that nominations will meet all the criteria in a given area. The criteria have been written to accommodate a variety of different types and sizes of health care organizations.)
Before a nomination can be considered and reviewed by the Best Practices committee, a representative from the nominating organization must be registered and available to both attend and present the award at the Forum.
