How We Celebrate Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week
by Kira Caban, Director of Communications, Protenus on October 30, 2020
Our team participates in the HCCA/SCCE Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week in honor of our clients—the healthcare compliance teams across the country that combine the power of artificial intelligence with their great expertise and leadership to ensure a culture of compliance throughout their organizations. These professionals ensure their institutions work efficiently, reduce risk, and maintain the trust of patients who seek care within their hospitals and health systems. Our team at Protenus will be celebrating these professionals in a number of ways throughout Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week.
Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week takes place from November 1-7, 2020.
To celebrate these professionals, we will be hosting two educational webinars. The first one-hour webinar discusses how data breaches are affecting the healthcare industry and practical steps organizations can take to protect themselves and their patients.

New internal compliance program
As Compliance Week kicks off, our team will be launching off the first-ever Protenus Compliance Month to celebrate everything compliance and ethics brings to our organization and the industry.
As part of our inaugural compliance month, our team will be rolling out a new and improved internal compliance program, including more comprehensive privacy and security training using a new security training platform. This platform has a wealth of courses designed to educate our team on a multitude of privacy and security related topics and also have a robust phishing campaign that automates the process of enforcing best practices and re-training our team members.
We will also host an internal lunch n’ learn session to detail the new compliance program and provide examples of industry best practices for compliance and ethics. Team members will have the opportunity to engage with our Information Security Officer, Privacy Officer, and members of our legal group for a lively and targeted discussion on compliance and ethical behavior.
Our team is also transitioning our mandatory employee training to occur during our compliance month as opposed to being completed on their work anniversary date. This migration allows for more efficient tracking of completion rates as well as adherence to company requirements. Throughout the month, our team will have the opportunity to test their knowledge with compliance-related quizzes and crossword puzzles—earning prizes for mastering their industry knowledge.
