PRESENTED BY: HEALTH ETHICS TRUST www.BestCompliancePractices.com CO-SPONSORED BY:
The Best Practices Forum was established in 1995 in cooperation with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to recognize accomplishments in the field of compliance. Since that time the Best Practices Award has been accepted as the mark of compliance program excellence. If you have never attended the Forum, it is unquestionably the compliance education event of the year. Unlike programs in which you are surrounded by hyperventilating vendors, the Forum allows you to look at what others are doing successfully in their programs. Awards are open to any compliance program practice provided that the practice has been implemented for at least six months. Many of the past best practices recognized at the Forum have become subsequently standard practice in healthcare compliance. Award recipients are selected by the Health Ethics Trust Best Practices Committee, an independent committee of experienced compliance professionals.
The Forum will be held October 24 & 25 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. The first day of the Forum will last from 8:30 AM to approximately 4:30 PM. The second day of the Forum will run from 8:30 AM to approximately 1:30 PM. There will be a networking receiption at the conclusion of the first day.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The Forum includes representatives from all sectors of the healthcare industry including providers, health plans, pharma and device companies. Compliance professionals, internal auditors, legal counsel, compliance investigators, education and training professionals, and government officials are welcome.

SPECIAL GRADUATE LEVEL OPPORTUNITY
In 2011, the Trust announced a special series of graduate level courses open only to experienced compliance professionals. The next graduate level program is the one day Compliance Program Assessors Course to be offered following the Best Practices Forum (October 26). The Health Ethics Trust is the leading provider of compliance program assessments. This course teaches our widely adopted compliance program assessment methodology. Graduates of the Compliance Assessor's Course are also eligible to participate in our peer review process leading to Compliance Program Certification. Qualified Assessors may participate in the panels that review organizations' compliance programs to determine the extent to which they meet Program Certification standards.

2011 BEST PRACTICE AWARDS & RECOGNITION
The Health Ethics Trust established the Healthcare Compliance Best Practices Forum in 1995 as a peer review process to recognize compliance achievements in healthcare organizations. Soon after the Forum was established, it became apparent that not only should best practices be recognized; individuals who have shaped healthcare compliance should also be recognized. Since then, the title of Fellow of the Health Ethics Trust has become the highest honor available to a compliance professional. Please join the Health Ethics Trust in honoring and learning from the 2011 Fellows of the Trust at this yearâ€™s Forum.

CLASS OF 2011 CERTIFIED COMPLIANCE PROFESSIONALS & EXECUTIVES A special award ceremony sponsored by Covenant Health will be held for all compliance professionals who have achieved CCP or CCE certification or recertification in 2011.
