OIG Work Plan has its First Ever Mid-Year Update
October 11th, 2016
This is the first time ever that the Office of Inspector General work plan has been updated mid-year, so hospitals and other healthcare organizations may not have been on the lookout for an update. It includes items that have been postponed, canceled, completed along with some new items.
Every year the Office of Inspector General publishes the work plan, which is an important document that hospitals generally review carefully to ensure compliance and to update the compliance risk assessments. The work plan summarizes hot spots to watch out for and includes the new and ongoing review and activities of the OIG. It is a blueprint of audit activities and is often reviewed extensively by the hospital compliance committees.
