Report 2011-113: Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System: Increased Transparency and Stronger Controls Are Necessary as It Focuses on Improving Its Financial Situation (Release Date: March 2012)
Recommendation #10 To: Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System
To help ensure that individuals designated by the Health Care System as needing to file statements of economic interests do so, the Health Care System should amend its conflict-of-interest policy to delineate the steps its filing officer should take to ensure that all Health Care System board members, medical staff, employees, and consultants who are required to file statements of economic interests do so.
6-Month Agency Response
The Health Care System's amended conflict-of-interest policy delineates the steps that the revenue integrity and compliance director will take to ensure that designated filers submit their statements of economic interests, including sending reminders to all designated filers, following up when individuals do not submit their statements, and reporting noncompliance to the Health Care System's executive leadership.
