COSO Issues Guidance for Healthcare Providers

2/20/2019

​Amid heightened scrutiny and ever-increasing complexities in operations and regulation, healthcare organizations face unique challenges related to the design and operation of internal controls. In response, the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), in collaboration with Crowe LLP and CommonSpirit Health, has published new guidance: “2013 COSO Integrated Framework: An Implementation Guide for the Healthcare Provider Industry.” Healthcare organizations experience issues with system access and integrity, clinical documentation, coding, and billing, all of which may result in potential noncompliance with federal and state regulations – and costly mistakes. The guide introduces healthcare organizations to COSO’s widely used “Internal Control – Integrated Framework,” and provides a roadmap to implementation to help strengthen their overall governance and internal control structures.
