Automate the COI disclosure and management process.
Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare system is the largest not-for-profit healthcare organization serving communities in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. In a system that size, it has never been easy to gather data for the IRS Form 990 reports required of all not-for-profits – or to manage mandated financial conflict of interest (COI) disclosures. Historically, the organization used a paper-based system; however, because of its size and organizational complexity, distributing and tracking paper questionnaires has become a cumbersome and resource-consuming process. Wheaton Franciscan was ready for a change. After canvassing the market, the organization decided to implement COI-SMART, which was met with great enthusiasm from employees.

The management of conflicts of interest involves annual (or more frequent) surveys to solicit financial disclosures from employees, physicians, and researchers. These disclosures are then evaluated by appropriate reviewers to determine whether real or perceived conflicts of interest exist. When such conflicts are identified, management plans are devised to mitigate or eliminate the conflicts. Automate this often cumbersome, manual, and labor intensive process with COI-SMART.
