MD Anderson maintains an Institutional Compliance Program to support our institutional mission, vision and core values and to help the institution fulfill its responsibilities to the people of Texas in an environment based upon ethical behavior and compliance with all applicable laws, rules and guidelines. To that end, the Institutional Compliance Program provides all MD Anderson workforce members with the most accurate, concise and up-to-date information and advice to assure that they are aware of their responsibilities with respect to sustaining such an environment.
MD Anderson's Institutional Compliance Office is responsible for the Institutional Compliance Program. The Institutional Compliance Office addresses general compliance issues, as well as issues related to research compliance, billing and reimbursement compliance, privacy compliance and corporate compliance. In addition, the Institutional Compliance Office responds to compliance concerns identified through ongoing auditing and monitoring activities, as well as those reported by workforce members.
The Institutional Compliance Office also maintains two hotlines that workforce members may use to report on an anonymous and confidential basis. In order to maintain MD Anderson’s culture of compliance and achieve its mission, the Institutional Compliance Office provides all workforce members with regularly scheduled and specifically requested training on state and federal legal and regulatory matters, as well as institutional policies and procedures.
