Callers and web reports can remain anonymous. Calls and web reports are not traced or recorded.
To follow up on a web report, you must have your assigned report number.
What is the integrity line and what does it do?
The integrity line is a confidential, 24-hour service that can help address concerns about ethical conduct. A neutral third party operates the service on behalf of Allina Health.
After receiving a call or web report, the integrity line reports the concern to the Allina Health Corporate Compliance Department for appropriate follow-up and resolution.
How do you prevent fraud among your employees and contractors?
We provide detailed information to our employees, contractors and agents regarding federal and state false claims laws, penalties, and non-retaliation protections. We also make sure they know about the Allina Health Compliance Program and its policies for detecting and preventing fraud, waste and abuse.
All Allina Health employees must take annual compliance education. Compliance education is also required for our credentialed providers, vendors, and other workforce members. Requirements include the need to satisfy all federal and state mandated compliance education requirements.
