(Recorded Webinar) Evaluating Your Risk Management Program

Duration: 50 minutes
Recorded on: 3/16/2023

Are you a deemed health center? It’s almost time to show the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) your risk management program! Are you ready?  

Program Assistance Letter (PAL) 2023-01, “Calendar Year 2024 Requirements for Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Coverage for Health Centers and Their Covered Individuals” has been released and currently deemed health centers will be required to submit their completed deeming application on or before June 23, 2023 (Electronic Handbooks will begin accepting applications as of April 28, 2023).  To participate in the Health Center Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Program pursuant to Section 224(h)(1) of the Public Health Service Act, health centers are required to demonstrate that they have “appropriate policies and procedures in place to reduce the risk of malpractice and the risk of lawsuits arising out of any health or health-related functions performed by the entity.”  This requirement translates to an evaluation of the health center’s risk management program by HRSA through the FTCA deeming application process.

This webinar will discuss the risk management requirements described in PAL 2023-01 and provide a framework for health centers to evaluate the effectiveness of their risk management programs both from the FTCA compliance perspective as well as a from an enterprise risk management perspective.  We will walk through the risk management requirements in the deeming application and Chapter 21 of the Health Center Compliance Manual and strategies for developing an enterprise risk management approach at your health center. We will also provide helpful resources to assist you in evaluating your risk management program.

Please note: This webinar is offered as a complimentary product to all Health Center Compliance Premium Plan Subscribers. For more information on our Premium Plan, click here or Contact Us.
