The UAMS Office of Institutional Compliance recognizes Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week each year during the first week of November.
This year, Tracy Thurman, B.S., CCRP, clinical research finance manager for the UAMS Translational Research Institute (TRI), is UAMS’ Clinical Billing Compliance Champion. She was selected for going above and beyond in her adherence to compliance and maintaining positive, supportive relationships with compliance office employees and other members of Team UAMS.
Below is the narrative submitted with her nomination:
“Tracy Thurman is the Clinical Research Finance Manager in TRI. Tracy and the TRI team provide vital services for clinical research areas, such as Medicare Coverage Analysis, building budgets, negotiating budgets with sponsors, and reviewing billing charges for clinical research studies out of TRI.
Tracy has an invaluable depth of knowledge in her field and always strives to help ensure that billing for clinical research studies is set up to ensure compliance. Tracy and her fellow team members work with many areas on campus such as the UAMS Billing Offices, the Value Analysis Office and the UAMS Compliance Office.
Tracy is well respected by her peers. She is always kind, professional and respectful. She is one of the many employees in TRI who help to foster compliance in clinical research that allows UAMS to continue to offer ground-breaking clinical research opportunities for our community. UAMS is very fortunate to have Tracy on TEAM UAMS!”
As part of this awareness, recognition, and reinforcement campaign, each division within Compliance selected Team UAMS members who demonstrate outstanding support to UAMS compliance programs.
