anticorruption assessment
The Colombian Superintendence of Health has mandated that more than 800 Health Care Organizations (HCOs) complete a self-assessment on corruption prevention, fraud detection, and money laundering risks by June 30, 2023.

This survey specifically targets HCOs belonging to certain classifications within the healthcare sector in Colombia. It will evaluate the compliance of their Integrated Risk Management Systems, Codes of Conduct and Governance, as well as the implementation of various risk management subsystems like the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing Risk Management System (SARLAFT), Corruption, Opacity, and Fraud Risk Management Subsystem (SICOF), and the Business Ethics and Transparency Program (PTEE).

Additionally, the questionnaire will require HCOs to outline a plan to address any outstanding regulatory requirements within the shortest possible timeframe.

Based on the results of this self-assessment, the Healthcare Oversight authority may undertake supervision and enforcement measures, ranging from requesting supporting evidence to imposing penalties for non-compliance.
