OIG Releases Additional Videos on Health Care Boards and Compliance

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) continues to release videos and podcasts on its website of interest to LTC providers.  Most recently, the agency released a video and audio podcast that provides a “toolkit” of tips to help healthcare board members to create a corporate culture focused on two primary goals:  promoting quality of care and embracing compliance with the law. View the video here. Further, in light of the upcoming Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirement that nursing facilities must have a corporate compliance program in place by March 23, 2012; OIG has developed free resources to help health care providers, practitioners, and suppliers understand the health care fraud and abuse laws and the consequences of violating them. These compliance education materials also provide ideas for ways to cultivate a culture of compliance within a health care organization.  To view the video, visit the OIG website.
