FREE WEBINAR: Healthcare Compliance: Driving Effective Compliance Forward

Are you a HIPAA Officer or do you have responsibility for compliance in your organization?

Are you 100% certain that all of your policies and procedures are effective?

If regulators notified you tomorrow that you had been selected for a comprehensive compliance audit, would you welcome the chance to demonstrate that your organization has dotted all the i’s, crossed all the t’s, and has implemented an effective compliance program?

Deloitte Compliance Survey

According to a recent Deloitte survey:

  • Only 66% of compliance professionals are measuring the effectiveness of the policies and procedures in their compliance programs.
  • In the event of a compliance audit, 34% of compliance professionals could not be certain that the policies and procedures they have developed are effective in practice.

For the 66% of compliance professionals who do measure the effectiveness of their policies and procedures, how are they measuring effectiveness? What metrics are used to determine how well internal policies and procedures are working?

On Thursday April 25th, the compliance experts at Compliancy Group will be hosting a webinar for compliance professionals to explain what it means for a compliance program to be effective and the most important benchmarks to keep track of. The webinar will also include a comprehensive overview of the HHS Office of Inspector General’s 7 Elements of an Effective Compliance Program, and strategies will be shared on how to ensure that compliance programs are effective.

For compliance officers who are not monitoring the effectiveness of their compliance programs, the webinar will be invaluable. Compliance officers who are monitoring the effectiveness of their policies and procedures will learn tips and tricks on how they can make a bigger impact in the organization they serve.

The webinar will be hosted by Liam Degnan, Senior Solutions Engineer at Compliancy Group. Liam Degnan has 8+ years of compliance experience, including risk management, SaaS sales, and regulatory compliance in the healthcare space. Liam advises healthcare decision-makers, healthcare providers, and medical vendors and speaks on a variety of platforms and topics, with an emphasis on simplifying HIPAA, OSHA, SOC 2, and other general healthcare compliance regulations.

To register for the webinar, complete the form on the right and make a note of the date in your diary. If you would like any specific compliance questions answered, you can ask them live in the webinar or email them to Compliancy Group in advance at
