Keeping up its tradition of encouraging employees to follow the highest of standards, LW Consulting, Inc. (LWCI) announced today that it will be participating in Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week, organized each year by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics & Health Care Compliance Association (SCCE & HCCA). This year it is being held November 4 through 10, 2018. As a part of its efforts, LWCI will be engaging employees in games and fun activities with the goal of increasing awareness of the importance of compliance and ethics in our work.
Lisa Wilt, CEO, shared “LW Consulting is all about compliance. We help our clients understand and comply with a myriad of State and Federal regulations. We conduct audits and mock surveys and provide compliance operational consulting including compliance program development and assessment. We adhere to the highest standards in our work and in our interactions with each other and the communities we serve.”
Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week is an extension of LW Consulting’s ongoing compliance and ethics program, which is headed by Harriett Wall. LWCI conducts annual company-wide, mandatory compliance and ethics education and provides regular reinforcement with employees about their compliance and ethics’ obligations.
“Compliance is critical for us,” said Harriett Wall, LWCI’s Chief Compliance Officer. “It is the nature of the work we do as healthcare consultants. We make sure that every staff member is fully aware of our obligations to protect confidentiality, PHI, and maintain attorney-client privilege when it is applicable. We conduct regular internal audits to be sure that we are doing all we can to protect ourselves, our clients, and ultimately those that matter most—the patients of clients we serve.”
