WARREN, N.J., Nov. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AdvantEdge Healthcare Solutions today announced participation in Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week, organized each year by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics and Health Care Compliance Association. Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week is November 6 through 12, 2016. As a part of its efforts, AdvantEdge has planned a series of events to celebrate and reinforce compliance awareness for team members company-wide.

"We take compliance seriously every day at AdvantEdge," said David Langsam, AdvantEdge President & CEO. "Participating in Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week underscores our commitment to privacy and security, which is a key part of the AdvantEdge Promise to each customer."
Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week is an extension of AdvantEdge's ongoing compliance and ethics program, led by Jeanne Gilreath, CCO & Senior Vice President. AdvantEdge Healthcare Solutions' code of conduct requires that all employees must follow the AdvantEdge compliance standards, ethics expectations, and requirements.
"The code calls on employees to personally 'Do the Right Thing' every day," according to Ms. Gilreath. "Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week reinforces those standards and complements our annual company-wide compliance and ethics education."
The company's formal compliance education, training and testing across multiple disciplines and compliance related areas (such as HIPAA, Coding, HITECH, workplace harassment, etc.) is conducted annually. Throughout the year, AdvantEdge rolls out new and updated compliance and ethics policies and programs that reinforce as well as remind employees of their compliance and ethics' obligations and ensure they understand the high expectations we have established in this regard.
"Last year's Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week was an overwhelming success and many employees encouraged us to continue and expand the week's focus and activities," according to Ms. Gilreath. "We have programs and exercises designed to encourage even more participation this year. It will be both fun and educational."
