At Brightpoint, our core values are the foundation of our business practices. We take our responsibility to “Stay on the Ethical Path” and comply with all local, state, and federal laws and regulations very seriously. We are committed to providing the highest quality of care to our patients and to be a good fiscal steward of public resources.
As such, Brightpoint has implemented a comprehensive Compliance Program to ensure that legal and ethical conduct is an integral part of our organization’s culture and operations. Our Compliance Program is governed by our Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct reaffirms the organization’s commitment to always doing what is professionally and ethically right, and it intended to guide all “affected persons” (employees, including physicians, independent contractors, vendors, affiliates and other agents) in upholding this commitment.
The Code of Conduct requires all affected persons to report any suspected noncompliant, illegal, unethical, or fraudulent, abusive or wasteful behavior by any Brightpoint employee, physician, independent contractor, or vendor, or affiliate regardless of whether or not it occurs at Brightpoint. Please be assured that no one who in good faith reports a compliance concern will be intimidated or retaliated against for doing so.
