Healthcare Crackdown on Fraud

July 30, 2009 at 5:40 pm Leave a comment

John Commins over at  HealthLeaders  recently wrote about the ever-rising focus on fraud in the healthcare.   In his article, Culture of Compliance Preempts Whistleblower Suits, he makes the point that the potential gains to the whistleblower in a difficult economy could easily increase the number of whistleblower suits.  He continues that creating a culture of compliance, with appropriate reporting pathways, is the best way to prevent these suits. 

The aphorism is true:  Prevention is the best medicine.  

Cultures are typically created informally and unintentionally.  Action by action.   Decision by decision.    Until there is a consistency in viewpoint and behavior.  I’ll build on John’s recommendation that now is the time to conciously create a culture of compliance by adding that culture has to be applied consistently across staff, contractors, and vendors.

Entry filed under: vendor compliance.
