Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Who do I contact if I have questions about the training?

A. Please contact the Office of Healthcare Compliance & Privacy at 860-679-4177 or ohcp@uchc.edu if you have questions about the training. For technical issues, please contact the IT Helpdesk at 860-679-4400. For general Saba assistance, please contact Chris Desjardins at 860-679-7577.

Q2. Am I required to complete the training? Why?

A. Yes, the annual UConn Health Compliance and Privacy trainings are mandatory for all workforce members. UConn Health policy aligns with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 requirements that entities receiving federal funds educate all employees, contractors, and agents (regardless of clinical involvement or tenure) about fraud, waste, and abuse, the False Claims Act, and other related compliance laws and protections.

Q3. What happens if I don’t complete the training by the deadline?

A. Failure to complete mandatory trainings results in referral to Human Resources with possible sanction recommendations from the Office of Healthcare Compliance & Privacy for policy violation.

Q4. I am on approved leave. Do I need to take the compliance training?

A. No, but you will be required to complete the trainings upon return from leave, and you’ll be given a unique deadline related to your return date. Saba does not calculate due date extensions for employees on leave, so please note that employees on leave and their supervisors may continue to receive reminders even though a different completion deadline may apply.

Q5. I took the training. How can I verify it is marked completed?

A. Verify training completion status by viewing your Saba transcript or emailing ohcp@uchc.edu. Please note, for Saba to record that you completed a training course, you must complete the entire module including the attestation page.

 

Q6. I am a manager/supervisor. What is my role in monitoring my staffs’ completion of the Compliance and Privacy trainings? How can I see who has completed the trainings?

A. Managers and Supervisors are accountable for monitoring employees’ timely completion of mandatory trainings. Use the Team Dashboard in Saba to verify individual employees’ training status. Please reference the Saba User Guide for Supervisors and Managers for step-by-step instructions on managing your team’s assignments.

 

 

Q7. There are employees on the training report that no longer work at UConn Health. How do I get their names removed?
