Compliance

An effective compliance program is essential in today's evolving health care environment and can be a hospital's most valuable tool. As your hospital continues to assess, develop, and ultimately operate its compliance program, the role of OAHHS and its Compliance Advisory Committee can be a resource for your hospital and assist in addressing any compliance-related issues as they arise.

Compliance Advisory Committee (CAC)

The OAHHS Compliance Advisory Committee (CAC) provides a networking forum for health care compliance professionals. This group meets regularly to assist Oregon hospitals in understanding and meeting the expectations of those who pay for hospital services and those who regulate hospitals.
Specifically, the OAHHS CAC serves to:
  • Raise awareness and discussion of current and future changes to the health care regulatory landscape.
  • Advise OAHHS and providing feedback regarding the impact of proposed legislation and rulemaking.
  • ​Propose new and/or revised regulations or laws through OAHHS to lawmakers and rule makers.
  • ​Provide a forum for questions and discussion of best practices when putting new laws and regulations into effect.
To contact some about your login or to be added to the CAC Listerv, please email your request to info@oahhs.org.

EMTALA Resources

EMTALA was enacted by Congress in 1986 as part of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) of 1985 (42 U.S.C. §1395dd). EMTALA requires Medicare-participating hospitals with emergency departments to screen and treat the emergency medical conditions of patients in a non-discriminatory manner to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay, insurance status, national origin, race, creed or color. OAHHS has the below EMTALA templates for use of its Oregon hospital members.
