Our goal is to model integrity and ethical conduct in all that we do. To that end PHTS has implemented a corporate integrity program and our Code of Conduct serves as the “constitution” of that program, defining our expectations regarding business conduct. Our Corporate Integrity Program is modeled after the U.S. Sentencing Commission Guidelines for organizations, published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, and clearly defines the components of an effective program designed to prevent, detect, and correct illegal or unethical conduct.
Our Code of Conduct applies to all PHTS associates, the board of directors, and our strategic and business allies, when representing PHTS. Although common sense and common decency are reliable guides for conducting business, we have formally adopted a corporate integrity program to make it clear that we have high expectations of all those who work for us and do business with us.
Specifically, we ensure all operational policies are well defined, understood, monitored, and all outcomes are consistent with the expectations required. The scope of the corporate integrity program, overseen by the PHTS corporate integrity officer, extends to confidentiality and security of information, evidence of consistent compliance with laws and regulations, and maintaining appropriate business relationships. We provide several options for reporting concerns, including an anonymous website available 24/7 for use.
If you have any questions or need any additional information, or wish to report any concerns, please contact Cindy J. Moore, AIM, CQIA, CQA, CMQ/OE, vice president, quality at PHTS at
