UW Medicine Compliance
Compliance is most simply described as the process of meeting the expectations of others. More specifically, it is the process of helping workforce members understand and meet the expectations of those who grant us money, pay for our services and regulate our industry. In an academic health care setting, like UW Medicine, compliance includes numerous issues such as reimbursement, grant accounting, information security, licensure, and due diligence to prevent and detect violations of federal and state law. This is why training is an important part of the UW Medicine Compliance Program.
