Georgia’s Compliance and Enforcement System

Thursday, December 8
1:00-2:00pm ET

This webinar will provide an overview of Georgia’s Compliance and Enforcement System. In 2016 Georgia deployed and implemented a system that integrates a risk-based, progressive approach that is clear, fair and predictable, taking into account severity of violations and a provider’s ability to correct. It incorporates a balance of standardization for consistency and professional judgment to allow for individual factors. We will show how the chart illustrates a systematic format that is fair and transparent, supports a licensed system focused on both regulation and support.
