What is corporate compliance?
Merida Health Care Group is committed to promoting strong business ethics and accountability within the company. Compliance basically has to do with following the law. The mission of our compliance team is to promote and monitor compliance with applicable laws, rules and regulations. This includes regulations governing federal and state healthcare programs, fraud and abuse matters, ethics, privacy and security requirements and corporate governance.
Because the laws surrounding healthcare services, billing and collection are complex, a strong compliance program is crucial to any healthcare company, whether large or small. Having a strong compliance program helps our company maintain its commitment to being an honest and responsible provider by identifying and preventing illegal and unethical conduct; improving the quality and consistency of patient care; creating a structure for employees to report potential problems; and developing procedures for prompt and thorough investigation of misconduct.
The compliance department works closely with other company departments including legal, operations, nursing operations, and internal audit. It also works with the corporate training and development department to create compliance training programs for associates. Every employee is educated in compliance and every employee is responsible for ensuring their own ethical, compliant behavior.
