CHA has released the ninth edition of the Hospital Compliance Manual, written specifically to help California’s hospital compliance officers, chief financial officers, legal counsel and risk managers stay abreast of pertinent state and federal laws. The manual focuses on high-risk compliance issues and addresses the key components of an effective compliance plan.

  • The California Department of Public Health’s new Centralized Applications Unit and how to know when something has to go to this new unit
  • The Office of Inspector General’s revised Stark Self-Referral Disclosure Protocol, new mandatory forms, required financial analysis and reports, and more
