UHealth Compliance’s goal is to ensure that the University of Miami Health System and University of Miami Hospital and Clinics comply with all applicable State and Federal laws and regulations. We encourage our physicians, providers, faculty and staff to demonstrate continued commitment to making proper and ethical decisions to both internal and external customers.
Our site will provide you with information regarding Billing Compliance, Regulatory Compliance, Compliance Education, and COVID-19 Compliance Updates.
UHealth Employee Resources
UHealth Compliance is committed to serving as a resource for all UHealth physicians, providers, faculty, and staff in all aspects of healthcare delivery. Mindful of the complex and dynamic regulatory environment in which we operate, UHealth encourages compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
The University of Miami is committed to the highest standards of ethical behavior as described in the Business Conduct and Ethical Standards.
The University is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. Employees should feel comfortable approaching their supervisor or manager to discuss instances where a violation of policies or standards may have occurred. In those situations where an employee prefers to make an anonymous report – via the web or by telephone – the University Hotline can be used to report concerns related to violations of policies and procedures, rules and regulations, or other irregularities/improprieties. The University Hotline is hosted by EthicsPoint, a third party hotline provider. Reporting areas include the following:
- Accounting and financial matters
- Human resources
- Information technology
- Privacy, data safety, and security issues
- Risk and safety matters
- Student affairs
Reported information will be forwarded to the University by EthicsPoint on a confidential and anonymous basis - if that is the preference of the person filing the report. All reported incidents will be considered and, where appropriate, investigated. University of Miami employees who report an activity that may be in violation of a law, rule, or regulation are protected against retaliation by the Whistleblower Protection Statement.
For more information, please visit the University Hotline website.
