Ignoring Physicians in Your Compliance Program is a Bad Idea

If you’re a compliance officer or work in compliance or legal at your organization, ask yourself if you know any physicians who work at your hospital. If the answer is no, or only a few, you have some work to do.

At its core, physician engagement is about building relationships. You are extremely busy, as are physicians, so how do you find time to invest in building these important relationships? Try asking for physician input when revising compliance procedures, training, or policies. Build a physician steering committee for compliance-related issues. Ensure that at least a physician or two is on your organization’s compliance committee. Lastly, try walking the halls of your organization and introducing yourself to your physician colleagues.

Put a friendly face on compliance for your physicians, and you are one step closer to ensuring compliant and high-quality care at your organization.
