Short Courses are brought to you by the Sharing Alliance™ – the trusted “by the industry, for the industry” not-for-profit organization that serves as a year-round educational resource for life sciences professionals. Not sure if you are on our email list? Contact us today.
Our third Alliance “short course” will focus on how to establish an effective compliance program specific to your employee and contractor interactions with healthcare practitioners (HCPs). Why is this compliance effort so critical to your company? Simply stated: Risk. Risk to corporate integrity and good name. Risk around effective healthcare practices. Risk of criminal and civil penalties.
The HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) stated this very succinctly when they issued industry guidance 15 years ago. “The OIG believes a comprehensive compliance program provides a mechanism that addresses the public and private sectors’ mutual goals of reducing fraud and abuse; enhancing healthcare provider operational functions; improving the quality of healthcare services; and reducing the cost of healthcare.” It is the responsibility of the pharmaceutical industry to implement compliance strategies to reduce the potential for off-label promotion and violations of the Anti-Kickback statute. This one-day, intensive, short course will (1) help define what your Field Compliance Monitoring program should look like, and (2) educate “monitors” on how to properly respond to real or perceived violations identified during their critical compliance role.
Field Compliance Monitoring
The material presented will benefit a wide spectrum of professionals well beyond those in “Compliance”. Whether the bulk of your monitoring programs are internal or outsourced, anyone with a responsibility around Field Compliance Monitoring, specifically Speaker Programs and Ride-Alongs, is encouraged to attend. That includes Legal, Sales Operations, Brand Teams, HR, Training, IT, Contractor Business Partners and anyone interested in learning more.
Topics to be Covered:
Laws, Regulations & Guidance - At the outset, we need to understand corporate best practices and the legal do’s & don’ts surrounding pharma sales promotions and other HCP interactions. This session will provide that framework, from which our compliance efforts flow.
Short Course Archives
Corporate Integrity Agreements - This is the “What have we learned?” segment of the day. There is an abundance of federal guidance to be found by studying past violations and the resulting CIAs. We will walk through a sampling of past and not-so-past CIA history, highlighting well-defined government expectations.
Monitoring - This segment will focus on the nuts and bolts of ride-along and speaker program monitoring. By delving into the Who, What, When, Where and Why, attendees will be provided with a road map to enhanced field compliance monitoring. Specific attention will be given to risk identification and management; and how audits, monitoring and data analytics will help guide your efforts and results.
Open Forum - In group discussion, we will open the floor to your questions and concerns, providing you with the added opportunity to learn from the experiences of your peers.
