Reminder: annual compliance requirements due for all VUMC employees

With the end of the current fiscal year brings the responsibility for all Vanderbilt University Medical Center faculty and staff to have completed their annual compliance standards.

A number of areas across the Medical Center have yet to achieve full compliance, with many employees still having one or more items needing completion.

Annual compliance requirements help ensure that all VUMC faculty and staff are appropriately following policies and procedures, which are designed to follow the laws, rules and regulations governing the health care industry.

To meet this goal, the due date to achieve full compliance has been extended from June 30 until July 10. It is important that all areas of the Medical Center have their employees fully compliant before this year’s Joint Commission survey, which will occur sometime in July. Employee compliance requirements will be reviewed by the Joint Commission team during their survey.

To find out if you are fully compliant please check the Compliance Portal to see your and your team members’ current completion status. Staff and School of Nursing faculty should  go to https://webapp.mis.vanderbilt.edu/compliance for this important update. This link goes to a PDF for using the Compliance Portal.

School of Medicine faculty should go to https://wag.mc.vanderbilt.edu/compliance.
