Audit Plan: Office of the Chief Compliance Officer for Health Affairs

Reason(s) Why Audit Is Needed:

A minimum of 1/2 full-time-equivalent staff year will be dedicated to performing audits listed in the Health Affairs' Chief Compliance Officer's fiscal year 2002 audit plan. The plan contains audits that are needed to insure that the Hospital's Compliance Plan is adhered to and to insure that identified high-risk areas have adequately implemented internal controls. Audits will include: a follow-up review and validation on codes that are listed in the Hospital's laboratory charge file; an examination of support for the Hospital's Medicare and Medicaid Cost Reports; and a limited review of the implementation of the Hospital's credentialing process. Where the Office of the Chief Compliance Officer's plan overlaps with the Office of the Internal Auditor's plan, the two offices will coordinate to insure that each office's objectives are covered by a single audit.

Audit Objectives:

The objective of our work is to provide audit support to the Office of the Chief Compliance Officer for Health Affairs.
