Compliance Committees

The Office of Compliance and Internal Audit (“OCIA”) was established to manage the Compliance Program and is led by the Chief Compliance and Internal Audit Officer who reports directly to MSM’s President and the Audit and Compliance Committee of the Board of Trustees. To assist the OCIA in performing its oversight responsibilities with regard to compliance, the following committees were established:

Executive Compliance Steering Committee (“ECSC”)

The ECSC, chaired by the Chief Compliance and Internal Audit Officer, consists of the President, the Dean and Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs, the General Counsel, the Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President of Administration, the Associate Vice President of Human Resources, the Senior Advisor to the President and Assistant Dean for Healthcare Quality, the Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs, and the Vice President and Associate Dean for Sponsored Research. The ECSC meets every other month to review and discuss audit findings, investigations, trends, and compliance initiatives.

Clinical Compliance Committee (“CCC”)

The charge of the Clinical Compliance Committee (CCC) is to take a leadership role to enforce compliance with Federal regulations and Institutional Policies and Procedures, as well as make recommendations to the Morehouse Medical Associates (“MMA”) Clinical Compliance Officer regarding all compliance related activities and operations at Morehouse Medical Associates, Inc. The CCC consists of key MMA leaders and representatives from each of the clinical departments. The strong physician involvement reflects the importance of compliant operations at the MMA level.
