Compliance Programs

Your health care organization has had several small compliance incidents in the past two years, and the organization is now motivated to update their compliance program. Your executive leadership team asked you to review two health care compliance programs from similar organizations to determine how they constructed their compliance program and what aspects your organization should adopt.

Select the type of health care organization you want represented in this assignment (e.g., family practice, hospital, urgent care, or nursing home).

Locate two compliance program documents from comparable health care organizations using your Internet search engine.

Read both compliance program documents and examine the similarities and differences between the two.

Create a matrix that compares how both organizations execute the following compliance components:

  • How internal monitoring and auditing is conducted
  • How compliance and practice standards are implemented
  • The designated compliance officer (or person designated to be the contact for compliance matters), who that person reports to, and their relationship to the organization's governing board
  • How employees are trained and educated to model compliant behaviors
  • How violations or offenses are detected, reported, and corrected
  • How lines of communication with employees is developed
  • How disciplinary standards are enforced

Write a 525- to 700-word executive summary that informs your executive leadership about the matrix you created and offer your opinion as to which best practices the organization should adopt for its own compliance program.


Cite the 2 compliance program documents and any additional references that support your opinion (e.g., trade or industry publications, government or agency websites, scholarly works, or other sources of similar quality).

Format your assignment according to APA guidelines.

    Assignment 3: Operational Barriers to Success

    Assignment 3: Operational Barriers to Success

    Delivering on a value proposition demands constant improvement and innovation as competition changes over time along with evolving customers’ needs and wants. How an organization delivers is not only dependent on its ability to serve the market but also on how well it adapts and overcomes the challenges of its own structure, culture, incentives, and design. However, an organization may face many barriers that hinder its ability to overcome these challenges.

    Using the module readings, Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research operational barriers. Based on your research, address the following:

    • What tools might an organization use to help identify barriers?
    • Identify at least three barriers that impede an organization’s ability to adopt innovative practices and processes.
    • Identify at least one organization that faced these barriers, describe the approach used to address these barriers, and explain whether it was successful or unsuccessful.
    • Explain what you would you have done differently to overcome these barriers.

    Write a 3–5-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M1_A3.doc.

    By the due date assigned, deliver your assignment to the Submissions Area .
