Volkman joins OMC as compliance manager

Olympic Medical Center announced last week the addition of Jay Volkman as Compliance Manager.

Volkman oversees OMC’s compliance plan, which supports an ongoing commitment to an ethical and professional way of conducting business.

“Jay brings enthusiasm to the role and has a deep understanding of the complexities with compliance matters,” says Donna Davison, risk and compliance officer.

Volkman hails from rural southwest Alaska and studied rural human services at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks.

Most recently, she served as deputy administrator for a tribal behavioral health system and previously as a finance compliance manager where she oversaw federal and state regulatory requirements.

“For me, it’s all about quality, sharing resources, improving communications and working collaboratively,” Volkman said.

OMC’s compliance plan incorporates seven elements: written policies, procedures and standards, a compliance committee, effective training and education, effective lines of communication, internal monitoring and auditing, enforcement of standards, and prompt response and corrective actions to detected violations.

A robust compliance program, OMC officials said, ensures compliance with laws, regulations and terms of contracts governing OMC’s operations as well as prevention, detection and correction of outlier practices that put the organization at risk.
