JERICHO, N.Y., April 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Care Compliance Strategies, Inc. (HCCS) announced today that Henry Ford Health System of Detroit, MI., has selected the COI-SMART system to streamline and automate tasks associated with the conflict of interest disclosure process. COI-SMART will handle the management of disclosures for more than 20,000 employees.


"Henry Ford's reputation is built upon credibility and transparency," says Doug Clark, Vice President of Audit and Compliance at Henry Ford Health System. "The COI-SMART system from HCCS will help us by improving the process by which we collect and manage conflict of interest disclosures.

"Henry Ford is a large health system with a large number of hospitals, medical centers and other health facilities. We're confident COI-SMART will be able to accommodate our unique needs."

COI-SMART utilizes automation to facilitate the review process. The system provides full back-end management and reporting to eliminate paper-based accounting. COI-SMART provides healthcare organizations with improved control and reduced risk.

HCCS is excited to partner with Henry Ford."

COI-SMART provides tools for automated assignment of reviewers, the development of COI management plans, and data mining tools for auditing, tracking and reporting on potential conflicts of interest. Fully customized questionnaires are configured for each respondent's role within the organization.

COI-SMART was selected by the Henry Ford Health System after an extensive RFP process.
