The UC San Diego Health Sciences' Office of Compliance and Privacy is committed to furthering UC San Diego Health Sciences' mission to deliver outstanding patient care by ensuring compliance with Federal and State healthcare laws and regulations as well as UC San Diego Health Policies (UCSDHPs). The UC San Diego Health Sciences' Office of Compliance and Privacy follows the seven elements of an effective compliance program. The seven elements are:  


  1. Implementing written policies, procedures and standards of conduct. 
  2. Designating a compliance officer and compliance committee.  
  3. Conducting effective training and education.  
  4. Developing effective lines of communication. 
  5. Conducting internal monitoring and auditing.  
  6. Enforcing standards through well-publicized disciplinary guidelines. 
  7. Responding promptly to offenses and undertaking corrective actions. 

In accordance with the seven elements of an effective compliance program, the Office of Compliance and Privacy applies policies, procedures, and the code of conduct to help employees understand expectations and how to do the right thing. A designated compliance and privacy officer and compliance committee is in place to ensure success of the compliance program. 

Education and training is distributed and conducted on policies and rules. Reporting lines are established so individuals may report issues of non-compliance without fear of retaliation. Auditing and monitoring is conducted to continually improve the effectiveness of our compliance program. Disciplinary standards are documented and publicized. Reports of non-compliance are responded to promptly and corrective action is undertaken by the Office of Compliance and Privacy.
