The health sciences are a highly regulated industry with increased oversight and enforcement including access and use of health information, patient care, billing practices, and research. Each health science area at Indiana University has unique characteristics involving their program. However, the primary compliance and regulatory needs are very similar and are a key compliance priority for the university.
The intent of the Health Sciences Compliance Program is to enhance and more closely coordinate current compliance initiatives to leverage resources and best practices at the health science schools of Indiana University. The program applies to all faculty, staff, and trainees, as well as students, of the schools that fall under University Clinical Affairs, currently comprised of the Schools of Dentistry, Health and Human Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Public Health (Bloomington and Indianapolis) and Social Work.
