Does your organization have a corporate compliance plan? Does the idea of implementing a program seem overwhelming? Do you even know where to begin?







HR & Compliance Program Establishment & Development:

If you are looking to develop and implement a corporate compliance program, IHP can help you. With Certified Compliance Officers on staff, IHP has the knowledge and experience to help you develop a program scaled to fit your organization. Through a collaborative effort, IHP can help guide your organization through some of the very basic steps of developing a compliance program, while developing goals for future program enhancement. Some of the program components with which IHP can assist are as follows:

·         Oversight for your compliance program

·         Compliance committee & a Compliance Officer

·         Compliance Plan & policies

·         Training and education

·         Standardized investigative processes and reporting methods

·         Monitoring and auditing  procedures

·         Open and effective lines of communication

·         Enforcement and discipline methods

 

HR & ComplianceTemplates:

In order to develop a robust compliance program, several documents and policies must be maintained. IHP can assist you by providing draft document(s) that can then be fully customized to your organization. A few examples of these templates are listed below:

·         Compliance Plan

·         Code of Conduct & sample policies

·         Employee Handbook

·         Investigative report template

·         Confidentiality Agreement

·         Disaster Response and Recovery plan

 

HR & Compliance Process Development:

Once your organization has made the commitment to implement a corporate compliance program, several processes must be developed and initiated. IHP can help you with designing a set of processes to maintain an effective compliance program.

Some compliance processes include, but are not limited to, routine training,conducting periodic audits, implementing monitoring methods, and documenting standards of behavior with disciplinary protocols. Other ongoing processes include ensuring adequate controls are in place with forming and maintaining business relationships, hiring new staff, and working with Protected Health Information(PHI).

Whatever processes are needed, IHP has the ability to provide experienced insight into best practices, assist with development and implementation, and provide personalized support to your organization and compliance needs.

One of the core elements of an effective compliance program is to have systems in place for ongoing monitoring and auditing. IHP offers Compliance, Human Resources, and IT Security risk assessments to determine what your office needs to do in order to be compliant with federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
