Care Compass Network Compliance is thrilled to offer a new, virtual Compliance training to our Community Based Organization (CBO) partners!

Your associates can complete this training at their own pace, or it can be delivered as a group to your entire organization in a staff meeting!

The following Compliance topics are included:
✓   Fraud, Waste, & Abuse
✓   Conflict of Interest
✓   Telework Security

Prior to launching this training to all CBO partners, a CCN CBO partner participated in a pilot program to complete this training and provide feedback. Below you will find some results of this pilot and a few exciting testimonials from the participants!
➢   27 CBO staff members participated in the virtual training module
➢   The average course completion time was 40 minutes
➢   On average, almost 85% of participants thought the course materials were of high quality, the information was useful, and the knowledge learned could be applied to their daily work!

Look what some participants had to say about the training…

“I liked being able to set my own pace and do it on a non-Zoom format”

“It provided beneficial tips and great examples.”

“It was easy to follow and I liked that I could pause and start where I left off.”

“I appreciated the material being focused, but in a broad way to be meaningful to all participants”

“HIPAA training doesn’t get that much more exciting!”

“Variety of different modules kept it from getting boring”
