HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Valley Health’s in-house counsel and compliance officer Jenna Walker Misiti, Esq., MHA, CHC, recently contributed an article that was featured in the Health Care Compliance Association’s October issue of Compliance Today.
The Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) is a nonprofit, member-based association for compliance professionals in the healthcare provider industry. Compliance Today is a monthly publication that is delivered to HCCA members. The magazine features original articles submitted by working compliance professionals on issues they encounter related to the many complex regulatory and legal standards in healthcare.
Misiti’s article, titled “First impressions: Integrating compliance into onboarding,” focused on the positive impact of including compliance professionals in new employee orientation programs, a practice that is done at Valley Health.
“Although HR usually orchestrates onboarding, this introduction to new staff provides the perfect opportunity to take ownership of a critical part of the process: setting the tone for the organization’s values, code of conduct and culture of compliance,” she wrote. Additionally, Misiti stated that members of the board of governors of healthcare institutions should also undergo compliance training since they are ultimately responsible for organizational oversight and may not have healthcare backgrounds and training.
“We’re proud that Valley Health was in the national spotlight as a result of the publication of Jenna’s article,” said Steven Shattls, President & CEO.
