Compliance/HIPAA

Harmony Healthcare Long Island Compliance Program

Harmony Healthcare Long Island has instituted a vigorous compliance program that is intended to promote ethics and integrity in the workplace and to prevent and detect wrongdoing of any kind, including but not limited to fraud, waste, and abuse in its organization relating to Federal and State health care programs.

Your medical information may be used for treatment, payment, or health care operations.

For example, your medical information may be used by the health care professional treating you, by the business office to process your payment for the services rendered, and by administrative personnel reviewing the quality and appropriateness of the care you receive.

Your information may also be disclosed pursuant to applicable federal and state law.

HHLI Code of Ethics Applies to Everyone

To this end, Harmony Healthcare Long Island has promulgated a Code of Ethics, a set of general principles to which we expect every member of the Corporation, every Director, Officer, Clinical Practitioner, Employee (full-time and part-time), student, and volunteer to strictly adhere.

Additionally, Harmony Healthcare Long Island expects all of our contractors, vendors, consultants, and other agents to comply with the Harmony Healthcare Long Island Code of Ethics as a condition of doing business with Harmony Healthcare Long Island.

Patients and Others are Encouraged to Report Suspicions of Wrong doing

In order to help us provide our patients with the very best of quality care, Harmony Healthcare Long Island strongly encourages any patient, nursing home resident, contractor, vendor, consultant, agent, visitor, or other person who reasonably suspects or is aware of any wrongdoing by anyone at or on behalf of Harmony Healthcare Long Island to report such information to our Compliance Officer or to call the Harmony Healthcare Long Island’s No-Caller ID Compliance Helpline.

Reports can be made anonymously

No retaliation for good faith reporting

We will Investigate All Reports of Suspected Wrongdoing

Harmony Healthcare Long Island obligates itself to investigate any suspicions of fraud, waste, or abuse swiftly and thoroughly through its internal compliance programs and processes. If we determine that a violation of its Code of Ethics or other wrongdoing has occurred, Harmony Healthcare Long Island will implement an appropriate corrective action plan including disciplinary action against wrongdoers.
