The UTHealth Chief Compliance Officer is the UTHealth official responsible for receiving and processing all confidential reports of suspected non-compliance that involve the activities or operations of UTHealth. Other UTHealth officials who receive reports of suspected non-compliance are responsible for notifying the Chief Compliance Officer of the report at the earliest possible time and transferring all information regarding the report to the Chief Compliance Officer immediately.
The Chief Compliance Officer, in coordination with the Triage Team designated in the Compliance Hotline and Compliance Reports Policy and Procedure, investigates or coordinates the investigation of all reports of suspected non-compliance. A summary report of all investigations is provided to the Executive Compliance Committee. The Executive Compliance Committee provides guidance regarding investigations and corrective actions as appropriate.
