Automate the COI disclosure and management process.
An important role of the Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) Compliance Office is to implement effective conflict of interest (COI) policies and procedures for staff that enter into external relationships. For several years, the office used a “homegrown” system which was not specifically designed to manage COI activities, causing several operational deficiencies that made its continued use impractical. They needed a sophisticated and comprehensive tool for streamlining COI process that would also be simple to learn and use. So it was important for the organization to partner with a vendor that offered a proven solution and track records. Download this case study to learn more about how HCCS helped HFHS realize its forward-looking vision for a COI management solution that automates processes, streamlines procedures, saves money, and reduces risk.
The management of conflicts of interest involves annual (or more frequent) surveys to solicit financial disclosures from employees, physicians, and researchers. These disclosures are then evaluated by appropriate reviewers to determine whether real or perceived conflicts of interest exist. When such conflicts are identified, management plans are devised to mitigate or eliminate the conflicts. Automate this often cumbersome, manual, and labor intensive process with COI-SMART.
