• Every day, Hill-Rom employees interact with health care providers in a variety of ways as we work to enhance outcomes for patients and their caregivers. For example, we collaborate with health care providers to develop new products, educate patients, and provide scientific and educational information.
• When it comes to interacting with health care providers, there are a number of laws, regulations and rules that we need to follow.
• To help you navigate our legal and regulatory environment, the Global Compliance Office created the “Interactions with U.S. Health Care Providers Guidebook” (also known as the “Guidebook”).
• The Guidebook is an interactive tool that provides guidance on health care provider interactions.
• The Guidebook provides easy-to-follow, step by step instructions and resources to appropriately conduct business with U.S. licensed health care providers.
• So what do we mean by health care provider (also known as H.C.P.)?
• Hill-Rom defines health care provider as “any person, business or organization that provides health care services or products, including those who use, recommend, or are involved in the purchase or lease of our products.”
• That includes doctors and nurses, hospitals, nonclinical office staff, hospital procurement employees, purchasing managers, respiratory therapists, and others who work for hospitals, doctors’ offices, long-term care facilities, or home health agencies.
• You can find a full description in the Guidebook.
• The Guidebook is intended to serve as the main compliance resource for U.S. based colleagues
• It is your “one-stop-shop” for everything you need to know about compliance in your day-to-day activities that involve health care providers
• The Guidebook includes links to policies and procedures, downloadable forms and more
How to Use the Guidebook
• Let’s take a look at the Guidebook
• It includes:
o An introduction section which discusses the purpose and scope of the booklet
o A section on today’s legal and regulatory environment, including a look at laws, regulations, guidelines and industry codes that apply to us, and
o Sections that discuss how to remain in compliance when interacting with health care providers
• Bookmarks make it easy to find what you need
• Each section describes:
o How Hill-Rom defines an activity or interaction
o What Hill-Rom policies and procedures we should be aware of when interacting with HCPs
o Required documentation, such as the approval forms that are necessary to conduct an activity, and
o Examples of “Permissible Activities” and “Impermissible Activities”
• In addition, “At a Glance” boxes highlight key points for easy reference
• And, the Guidebook includes icons that can help guide you throughout the Guidebook, and links allow you to quickly reference relevant Hill-Rom policies and forms.
• Let’s look at one example.
• Let’s say you’d like to provide a meal to a U.S. Health Care Provider as part of an educational discussion
• Here you can see that you’re allowed to provide meals and refreshments to health care providers in connection with an informational presentation or scientific or educational discussions -- so long as the meal is modest and doesn’t serve as the primary focus of the interaction
• The Meals and Refreshments section provides meal limitations for breakfast, lunch and dinner so you know how much you can spend
• And, this section also reminds you to correctly record and submit information for tracking and disclosure purposes under the Sunshine Act and state transparency laws, such as “HCP Sign-in Sheets”
• You can use live links in the Guidebook to access policies, manuals, and approval forms. For instance, in the Meals and Refreshment section, the Guidebook reminds you to use “HCP Sign-in Sheets” to track attendance at meetings and events, if more than three (3) health care providers partake in a meal
• The paragraph on “HCP Sign-in Sheets” includes a link to Hill-Rom’s HCP Sign-In Sheet that should be used to capture information about HCPs who partake in meals or refreshments
• Take a look at the “At a Glance” box for Meals and Refreshments. See how it summarizes the key points?
• Additional help is also available in a chart at the end of each section that shows examples of activities that are permissible, as well as those that aren’t.
Where to Access the Guidebook
• The Guidebook is available on the “Compliance & Policies” pages of Hill-Rom Connect (our intranet site)
• To access the Guidebook, click on “Compliance Approval Forms & Tools” on the Compliance & Policies tab of Hill-Rom Connect.
• As a recap, the Guidebook was designed to ensure your success
• We encourage you review the Guidebook and use it as a reference tool.
• You’ll see how easy it is to find and understand the information you need to appropriately conduct business with health care providers.
• Please don’t hesitate to contact the Global Compliance Office if you have any questions.
• We appreciate your commitment to compliance and your hard work on behalf of the patients and caregivers we serve.
