On the 2020 healthcare audit committee agenda

Prioritizing a heavy healthcare audit and compliance committee (audit committee) agenda is never easy, and 2020 will be particularly challenging.

Prioritizing a heavy healthcare audit and compliance committee (audit committee) agenda is never easy, and 2020 will be particularly challenging. The audit committee is operating against a backdrop of changing demand, changing demographics, digitization and disruption, as well as changing revenue models. Healthcare is once again on the political agenda for the 2020 election cycle.

Drawing on insights from our latest survey work and interactions with audit committees and senior executives, we’ve flagged six issues that audit committees should keep in mind as they consider and carry out their 2020 agenda:

  • Maintain (or regain) control of the committee’s agenda
  • Redouble your focus on the organization’s ethics, compliance, and whistle-blower programs
  • Understand how technology is impacting the finance organization’s talent, efficiency, and value-add
  • Continue to focus on virtual and physical privacy and security
  • Oversee risks associated with digital technologies and transformation and cloud controls.
  • Modernize the back office
