Our auditing and monitoring services are tailored to the specific needs of your healthcare organization. We bring expertise and customized solutions, ensuring your organization not only meets but exceeds the evolving standards of healthcare compliance. Riddle Compliance understands the fact that most organizations come with a set of cultural intricacies as well as operational nuances that necessitate tailored compliance advisory services and solutions to ensure productivity. Our compliance auditing and compliance monitoring advisory services are designed to meet these unique needs.

understanding the relationship between compliance auditing & compliance monitoring

Auditing and monitoring are two pillars of an effective compliance program, yet they serve distinct roles. Auditing is a more formal, structured process of reviewing and assessing compliance. It involves a systematic examination of records, controls, policies, procedures, and practices. The goal of auditing is to identify potential compliance risks and breaches, ensuring that your organization adheres to legal and ethical standards. Our auditing process is thorough, designed to provide a comprehensive analysis of your compliance status. Monitoring is a continuous, ongoing process. It involves regular oversight of operations and internal processes to ensure ongoing compliance. Monitoring is proactive, aimed at early detection of potential issues and maintaining consistent adherence to compliance standards. Our monitoring services keep your organization ahead, ensuring that you remain compliant as regulations and practices evolve.

understanding the intersection of compliance auditing & monitoring with the OIG’s seven elements of an effective compliance program

  • Crafting Robust Compliance Policies and Procedures: Your organization’s foundation lies in its policies and procedures. Our auditing services thoroughly assess these guidelines, ensuring they are not only comprehensive but also actionable and effectively implemented within your organization. With our compliance monitoring services, we proactively evaluate internal policies and procedures against employee and stakeholder conduct. Compliance is only maintained if actual behaviors align with applicable regulations and best practices. Together, compliance auditing and compliance monitoring serve an interdependent role in advancing your organization’s compliance posture.
  • Empowering Your Compliance Officers and Committee: The effectiveness of your compliance officers and committee is critical. We evaluate their roles and impact, ensuring they are not just fulfilling duties but are driving forces in your organization’s compliance narrative. This includes auditing and monitoring meetings, skillsets, operational gaps, and other pertinent processes to ensure compliance officers, boards, and committees effectively facilitate compliance controls.
  • Training and Education: Empowering Your Team:We understand the importance of training when devising a culture of compliance. Our audits help pinpoint areas where your team can benefit from enhanced education, transforming compliance from a requirement to a commitment.
  •  Ensuring Effective Communication Channels: Open communication is vital in a compliant environment. Our monitoring processes evaluate the effectiveness of these channels, ensuring they facilitate transparency and accountability within your organization.
  •  Internal Monitoring and Auditing: Our expertise lies in conducting comprehensive internal audits and compliance monitoring initiatives tailored to meet your specific needs. We provide insights and proactive solutions, helping you anticipate and address potential compliance issues before they escalate.
  •  Upholding Standards with Disciplinary Guidelines: We review how your organization enforces compliance through disciplinary guidelines, ensuring these measures are corrective and uphold the integrity of your practice.
  •  Proactive Response to Compliance Issues: Our services emphasize the importance of a swift and effective response to detected compliance issues. We assist in developing corrective actions that are not just reactive but are proactive, enhancing the overall compliance culture of your organization. Both auditing and monitoring services are critical in educating staff and compliance officers on handling incidents and compliance issues effectively.
