Corporate Compliance

UK HealthCare adopted a corporate compliance program in May 1998. The Compliance Program has two primary goals:

  • First, to enhance and further demonstrate to our patients, the community, employees, staff, the government and third-party payors our commitment to honest and fair dealing;
  • Second, to centralize and intensify our efforts in preventing and detecting illegal, unethical or abusive conduct.

Accordingly, each of us at UK HealthCare is obligated to report any conduct that we in good faith believe is illegal, unethical or abusive. You never will be penalized for raising an issue or voicing a concern when you do so in good faith. Failing to report such suspected misconduct can result in disciplinary action.

What Conduct Must I Report?

As University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital employees, you are obligated to promptly report any conduct that you are aware of, that you in good faith believe is illegal, unethical, or abusive. Potential issues or areas of concern include, but are not limited to:

  • Patient Care
  • Patient Referrals and Referral Sources
  • Vendor and Supplier Relationships
  • Operational, Business and Financial Integrity
  • Soliciting, Receiving, Providing or Offering Illegal Compensation
  • Conflicts of Interest, Duty of Loyalty and Duty of Care
  • False Statements, Claims and Representations
  • Research and Scientific Integrity
  • Coding and Billing Practices
  • Confidentiality of Medical Information
  • Responding to Governmental Officials and Regulatory Agencies
  • Abuse of Controlled Substances
  • Drug and Device Misuse
  • Theft or Embezzlement

Make a Report or Inquiry

If you become aware of conduct that you believe to be reportable under the Corporate Compliance Program, or if you simply have questions regarding past, present or future conduct, several resources are available to assist you. Ideally, you should discuss your concerns with your supervisor first. If, for whatever reason, you do not feel comfortable talking to your supervisor, you can raise the issue directly with a higher authority within your department or unit or contact the Clinical Enterprise's Compliance Officer, either directly or through the Comply-Line.

The Comply-Line is a toll-free phone number that is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year by an independent contractor. The contractor is professionally trained to take your calls about possible misconduct, or to arrange for you to receive answers to any questions you may have about compliance issues.

It always is better to raise a question before behaving in a manner that may be improper, but it is never too late. So if you are in doubt about an issue or have a concern, just ask. You never will be penalized for raising an issue or voicing a concern when you do so in good faith. Remember it is your right to raise questions and your duty to report suspected misconduct. Likewise it is the Clinical Enterprise's duty to react appropriately to your questions and concerns.

The Corporate Compliance Officer may be reached directly by telephone at 859-323-8002. If you prefer, you may call UK HealthCare's toll-free Comply-Line at 877-898-6072. Any compliance issue may be reported anonymously. The issues you raise will be addressed promptly and professionally.

If you prefer you may submit a report electronically on a website manned by a third party. 

Contact Compliance

If you are not comfortable reporting suspected misconduct or making compliance-related inquiries to your supervisor, you can contact the compliance officer at 859-323-8002 or the Comply-Line at 877-898-6072.
